Dear Bhaskarji,
I would like to add a bit more->

Not just a way to remember our ancestors but also to preserve our memories regarding vedic rites. The ground of SadAchara soley depends on the eternal tradition of our forefathers. As achara itself has no independent existence or formulated operations, therefore we have to accept the lakshana of SadAchara which is our forefathers. If the memory of past-generation fades away eventually we will lose our identity as Aryans or hindus. When the root of a race is veiled away, due to external changes it is likely to get diminished hence Varnasankara will appear. Primodial desires will take over and we will encounter the rise of non-vedic civilization. The Laukika necessity or lokachara precedes the spiritual (as eexperience regards individual) necessity in this case.
Best Regards,

Thanks for the additional information.  Yes, doing the shrAddha with shraddhA bhakti is a way of remembering our parents and their contribution to our growth.

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
