Uncle Heng’s Wife Wake

Inside stood a stucked on paper written with, what I believed, the Japanese words. They were chanting towards this, which I an outsider thought!.

So tonight, was exceptionally crowded, 151 group and lots the others came and give their emotional support to our friend, that looked indeed weary, fatigued, heartrending and torn apart but showing a manly superior front, in our presence, in everyone’s presence! And in our side glance noticed that he occasionally made his way to his late wife’s coffin, in his sadness, to steal a look at her, sleeping, …… forever…

our heartfelt wishes inside, i know, for him to be strong, emotionally, mentally and physically……
