Uncle

Uncle gone. He left around 2 pm on January 20, 2005. Uncle’s son Haojun cried when he called and told me. Although he had already prepared for it, he couldn’t help telling me in a hoarse and choked voice at this time: brother, dad left, just at this time. Although I was prepared, I was still shocked by the sudden news. Five minutes ago, I talked to my colleagues in the office about going to the hospital to visit patients in the afternoon. Don’t want bad news and up came. At 02:28 P.M. the day before yesterday, Haojun called me. At that time, I was on the high-speed rail from Xinyu, Jiangxi province to Zhuji, Zhejiang province. I was sleepy and my mobile phone was in silent state. I missed answering the phone. After getting off the train and finishing other things, I remembered to call Haojun back and learned that Uncle Tang’s illness had worsened recently. I was afraid that it would be difficult to get through this time. I comfort Haojun a little. It is a rule to be born, old, sick and dead. When people die, who can jump off?! For children, the only thing to do is to put all kinds of filial piety first, and to be filial when you are alive. You have done your best to be filial. Unfortunately, Uncle Tang is still young. It was too late to tell his wife the unknown News. I intended to take my wife to the hospital to visit Uncle Tang this afternoon, but I didn’t want Uncle Tang to leave so quickly. Uncle has been suffering from incurable diseases for two years. Two years ago, it was found that intestinal cancer transferred to the liver. Haojun also choked when he told me. After three surgeries and countless chemotherapy in the past two years, I finally didn’t retain my life and went to other places regretfully. Aunt Tang said: one hour before Uncle Tang passed away, he asked his son the time in an extremely weak voice. Haojun told him that it was 01:10 noon, and he said to himself that the doctor would go to work soon. This is also the last sentence that Uncle Tang left in the world. This is the noon break for doctors and nurses. Uncle didn’t say anything else. He expressed his strongest hope for life, infinite tired love for the world and reluctance for his relatives at the last moment of his life in a special way of asking about time, even though he knew that he had reached the end of his life. Today’s medical technology can do nothing for every terminal patient, and he is weak; But with a doctor, I believe that life will always be guaranteed, so he is waiting for the doctor to go to work, waiting for the continuation of life. The doctor went to work on time, but Uncle Tang took a few breaths, and the ECG became a horizontal line. He left forever. Science is beautiful and moving, while reality is skinny and helpless. Uncle Tang has only been in this world for 65 years. Walk calmly, walk quickly, walk clearly. When Uncle Tang left, there was no pain. I don’t know whether he left with a little secret in his heart, but his thinking is clear. I believe that he must leave with regret. Now his life is rich and the enjoyment of life begins, but he leaves. After all, Uncle Tang only lived 65 years old and was still young. Indeed, it was too young. Changyi, the oldest neighbor in the village, was already 102 years old. I was 90 years old when I met Zhong fumu who I hadn’t met for 13 years at the entrance of the village, seeing that I called out my name at the first time, after I greeted her, she asked me jokingly how long I could live. I sincerely hope that she will live longer, but I dare not respectfully wish her a long life, for a 90-year-old man, the age of 100 doesn’t have much practical significance. I replied that he could live for at least another 30 years. The old lady laughed heartily and said that she would give me a good word. What a clear thinking, the old man is still pursuing time. It is beautiful to live. Uncle Tang is a farmer, a real farmer, a traditional farmer and an ordinary farmer. My uncle is a tiger in the zodiac. He is a relative of my four suits. Uncle doesn’t study much. I don’t know his highest education background. Don’t blame Uncle for not reading much. Although he was born in New China and grew up under the red flag, Uncle Tang lived in the countryside at that time, and food and clothing were still the first place. Uncle Tang’s father was my grandfather’s younger brother, who was thin and sick all his life, you cannot participate in the work of the production team with a full labor force (when the production team works for one day, you can get a work score of one job), and you can only enjoy the work reward of six or seven points to participate in the year-end bonus, usually at the end of a year, not only can’t get the bonus from the production team, but also owe the production team grain as overspending households (advance grain to the production team in the middle of the year), make up for production team dividends insufficient. Uncle stayed in his hometown all his life and almost never went out. In my memory, Uncle Tang only went to Shanghai as far as he could in his whole life, and it was the only time that he prepared to get married when he was young. There is an aunt’s family in Shanghai. Uncle’s aunt is my aunt. When I was alive, every time I went to Shanghai to visit old people, I often mentioned to me the hardship and hardship of Uncle’s childhood and his family’s life, sighing that uncle couldn’t get the chance to study, I am very concerned about the living status of my Uncle family in the countryside. After the implementation of the responsibility system for production in rural areas, the life became better day by day, which completely ended the poor life. Uncle Tang once served as the captain of the production team after the fixed production to households, leading a small rural group of more than a dozen households and dozens of people. The production captain can also be said to be an official, but this official level is the highest position that Uncle Tang has ever held in his life. In any case, Uncle Tang also had political experience, focusing on the production team and looking at the whole brigade; Uncle Tang also had macro thinking starting from the overall situation of the production team. Someone once said that he didn’t have the experience of being a rural production captain, but he couldn’t be a county magistrate. It seemed that Uncle Tang had the basic experience of being a good county magistrate, however, such a high position of county magistrate is far away from the uncle in the countryside and a castle in the air. Uncle wussy, basic and inoffensive. When the production team elects the captain, maybe it is this point that everyone elects him as the captain. However, the production captain at this time was different from the previous production captain who worked collectively and cooked in a big pot. He basically had no right to use it and had no chance of corruption, but he had sufferings to eat. I have been the production captain for several years, and I don’t know when I will retire. But I only know that there should be neither offending nor offending people during my several years in office. Uncle Tang suffered an accident before he got sick. I was not very clear before. When Uncle Tang’s bone ash came out of the hearth, I saw a metal shelf about five or six centimeters long and three or four centimeters wide in the bone ash, after asking Haojun, he learned that it was a dry loading and unloading work several years ago that he fell from a high place and hurt the lumbar spine. During the operation, he left it in his body as a shelf for fixing bones. It turned out that in the process of urbanization, the village which is located in the combination of urban and suburban areas changed from village to village, and farmers became residents. The former farmers had no farm work to do, and the uncle who was born as a farmer could not be idle, so I went to the surrounding factories to do temporary work, which could increase the income and spare time on the other hand; I didn’t want to do the loading and unloading work but it happened unexpectedly. Fortunately, it didn’t leave too much sequelae. But the fate was so bad that soon after the accidental injury was cured, Uncle Tang was diagnosed with a terminal illness again, which was seasonal and had been transferred to the liver. After two years of treatment and struggle, he finally died. Every life will encounter accidents. Uncle Tang’s life was extremely ordinary, ordinary and plain, and he was an ordinary member of ordinary farmers. Uncle Tang’s life came and continued the path of Chinese peasant houses, and his wife and son were born forever. When he came, he was naked, and when he went, the smoke was gone. Uncle Tang left, most Chinese farmers will continue this path, generation after generation. I would like to use this article to pay tribute to Uncle Tang who just died.
