Mourning
« on: March 01, 2013, 06:09:22 pm »
I have a family member who is likely to die very soon, much sooner than I had expected, and I am realizing: I have no idea what the correct protocol is for mourning someone recently deceased, as opposed to honoring your other akhu.  Help?

To be honest?  She's someone I love deeply, and I also feel extremely unemotional about this.  Really I just want to make sure that I'm doing everything I can to help her make her way safely.

The post is old, and my reply is unrelated to the original post, but I wanted to let you know that I found that incredibly healing and helpful. Simply beautiful and very meaningful to me. So thank you.
