You sometimes see this type notice on the side of the road, on a wall with a stone on top, or on a noticeboard.
It is notification that someone has passed away.
On La Palma people are normally 'buried' in a coffin in the hole-in-the-wall system and that is usually done within 36 hours. If someone dies in the evening then they are buried the next day, if they die in the morning then they can often be buried the same day.
These notices are made by the funeral parlour and placed at strategic (and known) points in the village, and perhaps in neighbouring village if the person has famliy there.
The notice gives name and age ofthe deceased, partner and family members, the funeral parlour and the time and place of the funeral. Close family will usually drop everything (including closing a shop, office or restaurant) and go directly to the funeral parlour where friends an family will congregate of just drop in briefly to commiserate.
