PCs and Death

When a character dies, what do you do, or perhaps, what do your players do?

I can think of many possibilities.

a) Ressurection/Raise Dead - Person's back. Not much else to this.

b) Reincarnation - Person's back in a new body. (Ever had someone be reincarnated as something besides a humanoid?)

c) Rip up character sheet and tell them to make a new character.

Has anyone done anything more interesting, like run the character as a ghost, or perhaps have them travel as a petitioner in the outer planes, trying to convince a god to let them have their body back?

Just curious how you handle this concept of death.
