The Tomb-walling ceremony was the funeral ceremony among the Sullustans. When a Sullustan died—called the Eternal rest—a funeral of the dead Sullustans friends and family would join to entomb the dead Sullustan by places stone blocks where the body was placed. The Crypt Master presided over the ceremony. The first blocks would be placed by mates and younglings, then fully grown children, followed by blood relatives. After that would be other friends by their social status. When the last block was placed, the being placing it would give an address that was to be in number of words equal to the deceased's exact age in standard years. It was not a eulogy, for that would imply that the other mourners did not know the deceased as well as they believed.
