How to use "Shivah" in context?

When someone dies, their family and friends go through a process called "shivah" to honor the memory of the person they have lost. This process can entail lots of reflection on the life of the person who has passed and celebration of all that they have shared. In Judaism, there is a precise definition of when and how a shivah should be conducted.

There are seven days in the week when performing shivah is mandatory, and each day has its prescribed set of rituals. On the first day, family and friends gather together to say a prayer for the dead person, and they light a candle in their memory.
