Generations of Jews observe an important sacred ritual of reciting the Mourner's Kaddish prayer to honor and remember a father or mother. The prayer may also be said for others like a spouse or a child. Kaddish is recited at funerals, during the week of mourning (shiva), for 11 months, and then every year on the anniversary of passing.
And Job said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
