visitation (also called a "viewing" or "wake") the embalmed body of the deceased
person (or decedent) is placed on display in the coffin (also called a casket).
The viewing often takes place on one or two evenings before the funeral.
In addition, a family may choose to display photographs taken of the deceased
person during his/her life (often, formal portraits with other family members
and candid pictures to show "happy times"), prized possessions and other items
representing his/her hobbies and/or accomplishments.
The viewing is either "open casket", in which the
embalmed body of the deceased has been clothed and treated with cosmetics for
display; or "closed casket", in which the coffin is closed.
The viewing typically takes place at a funeral home. It may also take place

If the decedent served in a branch of the Armed forces, military rites are

In many religious traditions, pallbearers, usually males who are close, but
not immediate relatives (such as cousins, nephews or grandchildren) or friends
