Miraaz has answered your question well and one small correction in that I have added as comment. Sai Ram. Condolences to you and other bereaved members and prayers for the welfare of the departed soul.

16th day ceremonies are for thread marriage and marriage, by the way.

People from different religions or even different sects in Hindu religion perform these called, religious rites after death, on days starting from 1 to 41, bet' 11 and 17, being most common. You can give the reason as: "to perform the religious rites after death on .........day (s). Please accept my condolence.

Are you sure! Read your question again !

People do not do pooja on 16th day after their death, because they are already dead ! It is others, who are alive, who do the pooja for the moksha of the dead person\'s soul !

Also, if I am correct, it is the 13th day after death - which is the last day of the funeral ceremonies - when all relatives and friends are invited for lunch and dinner - in honour of the dear departed soul.

You can say \" Please grant me leave to attend the Pooja on last day of the Shraddh Ceremony \"
