Just as there is death after life, there is also life after death. A person ceases to exist as a

living human being at death, but most people believe in another plane of existence-an

afterlife-beyond this one. Whatever the nature of the afterlife may be, and whether it

even exists, are matters of speculation and faith. But one thing is certain: At least a part

of what we were continues to live in the minds of those whom we loved and who loved

us in turn. These are the survivors, the bereaved who mourn and grieve for us.
