Yes my friends this is true, one of my best friends that I considered as a brother and a father to me has passed away and we finally sent him at his final resting place. After a long period of time I can no longer remember when was the last time I walked with some of the people sending to the cemetery...and that was what had happened to me. Well, I don't mind because I considered it as a tribute to him (the deceased). How about you guys, during burial occasions with your relative or anybody else would you ride if most of the people walks in going to the cemetery? When was the last time you walk with the burial entourage? Let's talk about it friends... Mobhomeir

Hi Mobhomier, Please extend my condolences to your best friend's family. I know it's so painful to lose someone so important to us and that we loved dearly but we need to accept the fact that life is just temporary. We need to move on. Our departed ones will be celebrating new life in heaven and we have to move on. it's a process that we need to bear!

You have my sympathy. It is hard to lose someone you are that close to. I have difficulty walking, so I would probably ride anyway and I guess I'm not a good example, for you to get a feeling of what people would do. In the US I don't think most people walk to the cemetary, most people drive everywhere. It does sound like it would be a nice tribute. Again, I'm sorry for your loss.

Yes cerebellum thank you. I understand you're not doing that way at the US. Here in our country it is commonly still a practice in the province. I already live in the city but there were still prefer to walk especially if the cemetery would not be too far to walk, as a tribute to the departed one... Thanks for responding my friend... Mobhomeir
