Ive heard many people light a candle(even burning it in the windows for a few days)after someone dies.
What is the significance for you or your beliefs(if any)?? And if you do it for a certain amount of days...why?

Here is one explanation: http://ohr.edu/ask_db/ask_main.php/235/Q4/
The soul, or neshamah, of the departed derives joy from the kindling of lights. This enjoyment brings theneshamah to a state of spiritual expansion. Theneshamah itself is a portion of light drawn from the light of the intellect (sechel). In Proverbs, King Solomon refers to this when he writes, "Man's soul is G-d's candle."
