With Nelson Mandela's body lying in state in South Africa and thousands of the country's citizens lining the streets to see the hearse pass, expatriates across the world also need a way to mark the former president's passing.
Mandela touched so many lives and services and books of condolences for South Africans overseas and others wishing to show their respects are being held.
Many countries and local communities have started their own books of condolence, with high profile figures being seen signing them.
Any expats wishing to add their names and comments to this body of respect should seek out the nearest one to where they are living.
In countries all over the world, these books can be found in the South African High Commission offices, which are often located in capital cities or large towns.
A number of High Commissions are also holding memorial services to allow those unable to travel to South Africa to reflect on the man's life.
The High Commission in Singapore will stage its service tomorrow (December 12th), as will its counterpart in Jamaica, where mourners will congregate at the University of the West Indies Chapel from 1pm.
New Zealand is to have four official memorial gatherings with those at the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral, known as the Cardboard Cathedral, and TSB Bank Arena, which are to be held tomorrow at 5.30pm and 12pm respectively.
On Friday, mourners will be able to show their grief at 12pm at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, Parnell in Auckland and at 4pm at Turangawaewae Marae in Hamilton.
In London, a tribute has already been held at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, which stands a few feet away from the South Africa High Commission in Trafalgar Square.
This has become a focal point for people to leave floral tributes to Mandela and a book of condolence can be found at the spot where freedom vigils were held during the 27 years he was in prison.
