    When I was younger [when my Dad [Thai] was still alive] we would light incense for his mother & father who have passed away.

    I don't remember how many incense sticks we lit but I do remember bringing the incense close to our foreheads before we placed it in front of my grandparents' pictures. And we burned something which I can't remember, if I am not mistaken it's very similar to what's called as Chinese Paper money].

    Does anyone have any information regarding giving "respects" to our dear departed ones & what the ritual entails.

    I'd really appreciate this!

    Khob khun kha :-)

    When you bring those incense sticks close to your forehead, you're expected to somewhat talk to them like wish them good luck and see how they're doing. It's similar to that.
