Non-Funeral Ways to Mourn

"Over the past year, I’ve experienced several losses that, at the request of the deceased, did not include funerals. Grief rituals are central to my mourning process, but there’s no negotiating with the dead.

Recommendations include donation to a favorite cause of the one who has died, learning one of their skills or trying their hobbies, and making a pilgrimage to a place that meant a lot to him or her.
