At a certain point, death comes for all of us. And whether or not we've had the time to make our last wish, we must leave our bodies and everything they're a part of. To make these goodbyes easier for everyone, people are organizing truly heartwarming send-offs. Bored Panda has collected some of the most touching funerals, and they will send shivers down your spine.

From small and personal gatherings to huge public rallies, these ceremonies were everything the deceased would have wanted. But as much as we can honor a person postmortem, it will never come close to what a live interaction can offer them. So, after you scroll down and enjoy our list, pick up a phone and make that call you've been putting away for a while. 'Later' might become too late.

A four year old <3 that is so sad, also the Parents did a spectacular job. If you showed your child like this that you love him, i am sure it was a lucky child.
