________________Repast

 

Traditionally the repast was held to comfort the grieving family, at their home,  and visitors would bring items with them.  The family would be relieved from the stress of cooking for a few days due to the generosity of others. However, today the tradition is changing and more people are starting to have refreshments following services in a private room or host/cater the repast themselves. Whatever, you chose to do remember that this is a trying time and the less stress and responsibilities you take on the better. Below is a list of items you usually find at a repast.  If you are sticking with tradition people will ask what they can bring and the list can be used to assure that you have equal proper amounts of food.
