Uncle

Uncle is August 18 this year (lunar July 5) night 5-point 20 died, died that day, weather forecast rain, results didn’t. The two children of my eldest uncle decided to cremate the next day according to Mr. Yin and Yang’s statement that he would never bury him. My great uncle will be buried in Li’s graveyard after cremation. However, the weather forecast reported a shower on August 19th. We prayed for the next day without rain with our cousin and sister. Because my uncle didn’t have a formal job, and he didn’t have any insurance such as subsistence allowances and Social Security. He didn’t leave any legacy for his two children when he left. Moreover, because he treated his uncle, his cousin had already spent a lot of money. My cousin and cousin did small business in Harbin, and they had to support their elderly aunt, so their life was already very poor. It costs hundreds of yuan to park the body of my eldest uncle in the funeral parlour for one day, plus the expenses of relatives living in hotels, eating and so on, which is a big expense for any ordinary family. I don’t know whether my great uncle has spirit in heaven or is related to our prayer. God really helped us. The next day it did not rain, and it was a sunny and sunny weather. We arrived at the funeral home on time at 7.30 in the morning according to the time set by Mr. yin and yang. There were many outsiders in the funeral home. It was said that five bodies would be cremated today, and the eldest uncle ranked second. Mr. Yin and Yang is an old man around 80 years old, accompanied by a woman over 20 years old, who is said to be the niece of the old man. My cousin and I followed the old man closely, for fear of any link being neglected. He took us to a place where we wrote wreaths and ribbons, and asked us to write ribbons on the wreaths placed in the Farewell Hall. It cost money to write ribbons. Besides, the wreath we presented for our great uncle already had ribbons. I decided not to write ribbons any more. This is not only for saving, but also for unnecessary expenses. Last night, Mr. Yin and Yang asked my brother to give 100 yuan to the heartwarming driver who carried the corpse. He said that the heartwarming driver who gave the corpse could walk slowly. If he didn’t give the money, the car would run fast, which was not safe. At that time, I just wanted to let my uncle go safely. I didn’t think about anything else, so I gave it to him. I thought it was my uncle’s fare. My uncle’s life was not smooth. Due to the pressure of life, when my cousin and cousin were still young, he left Zhaoyuan and opened a small restaurant in a small town called Fengle. Later, he divorced my aunt, I gave both my two children to my aunt. Go to the Greater Khingan Mountains alone to carry wood, watch mountains, fish, etc. More than 20 years later, the two children grew up. At that time, my great uncle was looking at the mountain gate for a scenic spot in Wudalianchi. The two children were very filial. They inquired about the news of their great uncle in many ways and said that they would find their father anyway. I remembered that it was very cold and snowing heavily that day. My two children and my uncle suddenly came to my house. My mother was very excited and said that she really appreciated her big nephew and niece to see her younger brother alive. That night, I didn’t know how much tears my mother shed. I have four aunts and one uncle. My mother is the eldest, and my eldest uncle is the second child. My big uncle was brought up by my mother, and the relationship between my mother and my big uncle was deeper than any of my aunts. On that day, my mother burnt the Kang very hot, letting my uncle warm on the hot Kang, and made a lot of dishes for my uncle and his cousins to eat. What kind of family affection we have met again after a long separation is full of sadness and happiness on the warm Kang. Mr. Yin and Yang led us to the person who handled the cremation procedure and said that he would give him 100 yuan. There was no need to worry about the death certificate. The procedure here was as usual. I asked dully: isn’t the formalities in the front building? It’s in the front building, can’t it be done now. However, how can the No. 1 be refined? I have paid for it. The first number is for 200. When the hospital goes to work at 8.30, the death certificate can be taken as soon as it goes to work. The procedure can be carried out as usual and will never be affected. I didn’t agree to give him money, but I said many good words and gave him a box of cigarettes in my hand. Finally, I was assigned to my uncle. Mr. Yin and Yang pulled us aside again, saying that they all gave makeup artists money, which was usually 200 yuan, so that the makeup artists would make up well without any delay. I know what he said was that the makeup artist didn’t delay the time. If he delayed the time, he would miss the burial time. Therefore, I personally sent 50 yuan. I said it was just a little mean. This is my uncle who is not rich at home. I beg you to make up on time. I wrote the eulogies. Instead of writing the bad habit of eating and drinking, I simply explained the past of my uncle running around without success and enjoying family happiness with his children when he was old. The host is my friend. He didn’t ask for money or cigarettes. Besides relatives, more than 30 people who attended the farewell ceremony were friends of their cousin from Harbin. Although the number of people is small, the farewell ceremony is not simplified. This makes my relatives and friends very satisfied. I think it is really good to have such a farewell ceremony as my uncle. Mournful and mournful, the host’s voice was heavy and sad. My uncle lay quietly in the temporary spiritual sleep for farewell, mournful and kowtowing. My mother and aunts helped each other, and my cousin fainted for several times. My cousin didn’t cry, but every time he paid, his dull eyes kept asking me why he paid me? How back money? As soon as my uncle’s body was pushed into the cremation room, Mr. Yin and Yang pulled me aside and said, “Give him 200 yuan for the fire chemical industry, and let him refine the bones of the dead, and bury them in this way. After discussing with my cousin, I decided to send 100 yuan for free. I went there. Huohua not only received 100 yuan, but also said that we were two and gave 100 yuan. How to divide the money? Bring two more boxes of cigarettes! I took the cigarette, but before I sent it, the hands of huochemical had already taken it. They said they would send two boxes for free, and you were stingy enough. I really dare not say anything. In the world of yin and yang, seeing this purple face, I didn’t know whether he was alive or dead. My hair was cold and I left timidly. My uncle is an eccentric person. If he is still there, what can he do? I am saw my uncle stop breathing with his eyes closed tightly, just like sleeping and snoring, but he stopped after a while, just like sleeping peacefully, is that the satisfaction of returning home? The death certificate of the hospital arrived before the refining was finished. My cousin and I hurried to the lobby to go through the formalities, which included cremation fee, mortuary fee and other expenses. I saw my cousin take out 3500 yuan and send it to the window, in which a cremation certificate and a pair of red gloves were sent out. The bone ash came out, and the bone sticks of the four limbs were not scattered. The skull was divided into several pieces that could be pieced together. Mr. Yin and Yang was very satisfied after seeing it, saying that the bone sticks were well refined and could be placed in the small coffin. I wonder if my uncle should hold the hands of huochemical industry tightly, or hug huochemical industry tightly and say thank you? In fact, in the eyes of those sad people like us, my uncle is our relative, while for funeral parlors, my uncle, like other corpses, is a product to be processed, my uncle is going to be processed into a product called bone ash here. The quality of the product depends on the technical standard of pyrochemical industry. Funeral Parlour is a factory that processes bone ash. You send the blanks and want to process them into good products. Every processing link must be carefully prepared so that it can be processed according to your requirements. The death of his great uncle in his hometown was his last wish. To get back home, big Jiu, he learned that he had is liver cancer after, once refused for all drugs, peerless 7 days. He returned to the hospital in his hometown 3 days before his death. My great uncle wandered outside for a whole life. When he was old, he asked for a fallen leaf to return to his root, which moved God and the people in the funeral parlour. Finally, the tip was not given for free, and the cremation of my great uncle was successfully completed. When he was buried, Mr. Yin and Yang recited all kinds of formulas that he couldn’t understand clearly and carried out step by step. After burying the last shovel of soil, I heard Mr. Yin and Yang shouting loudly to bury himself! The shout echoed in the silent Poplar Forest, and a sparrow flew away. After the burial, we all breathed a sigh of relief. None of us knew whether our uncle was satisfied with this process? I don’t know if my uncle is buried? Wish you a good journey!
