'''Death''' was the permanent end of all life functions in a [[lifeform]] (or part of a lifeform in the case of tissue damage). It could also mean the absence of life or state of being dead. Many [[culture]]s address this process as it applies to [[sentient]] beings in [[religion|spiritual]] terms, including the holding of [[wake]]s, memorials, and [[funeral]]s following the death of an individual. One who was in the process of dying was said to be on their '''deathbed'''. ({{ENT|E²}}, {{DS9|Ties of Blood and Water}}, {{VOY|Renaissance Man}}) Slang terms for death included "croak". ({{film|4}})
