The funeral participants gather around the coffin placed on a table in the center of the church.


Attendants light candles in the corners of the coffin, again to light the way through the darkness of death.


The widow and the daughter of the deceased stand at the coffin as others gather around. Other family members pass out bags of snacks as pomană, or alms for the dead.
