Crap!! You die and you are gone just like a squirrel that is run over. I believe human beings do have an essence that could be called a soul. But that essence dies with the person. That essence IS the person. it is what makes one person act more humanely, more nobly than the person next to him on the subway.

All tears are shed for the person shedding them. Just go to the funeral, shed your tears and be glad it's not you being lowered into the hole.
