Ideas of a hereafter also come in different versions. In SM Stirling's Emberverse series, when an elderly couple dies, Juniper Mackenzie makes sure that they receive Mormon rites, Also, however, the clan inherits their farm and stores and some residents make offerings. Thus, the couple have effectively become Wiccan tutelary spirits. I think: dulce et decorum est... It is fitting and proper. In Neil Gaiman's Sandman scenario, there would now be two versions of the couple. One version is in the Mormon Heaven. The other presides at their former farm.
