Read it in your bible: LET THE DEAD BURY THE DEAD.
A funeral is not necessary. Let nature do that job. What goes up must come down, from dust to dust. Natural law.
In fact there is no thing called death. It is only a human mindconception. But Nature doe not know a thing called death. Because if, the Universe would long time gone dead. Nature is a circle of life, if there would be death in it the circle stop and nature dead, seen. So look into the universe and see the Iternity Iyah. When ya body goes back into earth it makes the plants grow and the whole thing start a new.
Because when you read it.... I think in book of Wisdom(pseudoapocrypha) it says: JAH DID NOT CREATE THE DEATH! So is there any other creator besides JAH I ask. NO. So if JAH nah make the death..... there does not exist anything called death. It only exists in the mind of man.
And when you clearly check Num6, you do not have to cut you locks when you get near to a dead body, though you should avoid that, but you must cut them when someone SUDDENLY dies beside you. So I would not touch no dead things(the matter is not dead and never can.... but the person has seperated from the body.... so the body is without person and so is dead for the person) but I would help nature, dig a whole and put the body in it so it can live again. But if someone dies suddenly beside you you are totally in that process.... death is a force Iyah.... and the passing of the person is the real death. Because as we read in the bible, those who do not have a connection to JAH leave for ever. Wages of sin is death. So if you are there when one is dying..... you are there at the force of the death of the person and soul. The matter can never die as science teaches us.
Just some thoughts...
