Simple Funerary Rite

You will need a fire safe bowl, a half cup of wine, a stick of incense, a white candle and a photo of the person if possible.

If you can do so, do this outdoors. If not, inside is fine. Sit on the ground/floor. Light the candle and the stick of incense that reminds you of your friend. (IE. if he was an outdoorsman, select a woodsy scent like evergreen or sandalwood, if he was a homebody, cinnamon, etc.) If you have a photo of him, set it in front of you. If not, hold the image of your friend firmly in your mind.

Take a small fire-safe bowl filled with the wine. Warm the wine over the candle flame. Visualizing your friend surrounded by a soft white glow, wish him well on his journey and assure him you will see him again in your next life. Drink the wine and let yourself remember all the wonderful things you and he shared.
