Sept.30 Friday Funeral
Today I had a precious experience. I went to the funeral for my host mother's siter.
She was murdered last weekend? maybe.
I am lucky not to have had any funerals so far. It was, actually, first funeral I went.
Everything must be different. In the church, we spent time with her body, and many of her friends or relatives were there. After we moved to ceremony room, we had messages and songs for her. Many of them wept. There are tons of sad feeling.
I don't know how to say, but she was 52 years old. It's my parents' age.
I can't think that either of my parents would die...especially killed....
Children of hers must be wrecked. If I were one of them, I would be.
After the ceremony, we drove to the cemetary with her body in the another car.
In the cemetary, they put flowers on her casket. Full of sadness and grief for her death.
I will have to experience it for my family, it's inevitable.
I don't want, nobody wants...
Not only is there farewell, but there is also happiness for new lives.
There are some babies and many kids.
There are both leaving lives and new lives.
I felt a lot of things.

PS
That funeral style was Christanity style (maybe Cathoric? That church was Cathoric).
There priest repeated the word "resurrection" several times.
That idea is so much like Christianity.
According to Buddhism, dead people will go to the land of Perfect Bliss.
That is one interesting thing.
