I-041 B06 Funerals: when someone died, the neighbors would go to the house to help out. They would make the box. The wood was always at the ready in the houses. At night the children were at their prayers and they were called "hilortzaile"(gravediggers). They would go to the villages where there were relatives who would invite them. A great meal was prepared. If someone was forgotten to be invited then there would be arguments. The corpse used to be in the house. Before, everybody died in the village not in hospital. If it was necessary to take care of someone ill they went to the houses even if they were not relatives. They also helped out with work.
