At the end of the year of mourning, Jews in North America have the custom of a stone-setting or unveiling ceremony. This is an opportunity to remember the person who died and give a sense of closure to the year of mourning. Since there is no liturgy for this ritual, it's a good opportunity for people to share memories in whatever way makes sense to them--through set prayer, like El Malei Rachamim and kaddish, or traditional eulogy, or by sharing recorded music the person liked, or photos of them.
