Death is an obvious and evident reality. No one can escape death and we all have to face this reality. As most people consider death the end of everything, they fear it. Also in our culture, when someone dies, the family also suffers economically.
In the Word of God, we learn that the followers of Jesus are not to mourn like those who do not have hope because if someone who is a follower of Jesus dies, he or she will resurrected again. In funeral ceremonies, the followers of Jesus sing worship songs to God, they pray, and the remember and celebrate the victory of Jesus over death.
