Patrick Sheppard's wake

"A wake is like a big party; supposed to give the departed a jolly send off."
Samantha Carter[src]

A wake is a ceremony associated with death. Traditionally, a wake takes place in the house of the deceased, with the body present; however, modern wakes are often performed at a funeral home.

In 2008, Lt. Colonel John Sheppard had to return to Earth to attend the funeral of his father Patrick Sheppard which included a wake. (SGA: "Outcast")
