    The article was an excellent read, but the author tends to forget one thing, that some customs look like they may have died out, such as the funeral feat and dancing, but in all reality they have not. Those Italian immigrants who ventured to the United States, especially those from Southern Italy, after the burial of a beloved, also had a funeral feast (family and friends getting together and afterwards (not always) played slow dance music. This was undertaken mostly by the Southern Italian immigrants, which basically indicates that a lot of customs may have seemed to have become extinct, but in all reality, at least in certain segments of a population, continued. I even witnessed a number of such events, when I was younger. Phil
