Rest In Peace, Grandma

Friday, 30 March 2012


“In loving memory of my grandmother. This is at my grandma’s funeral. She lived for over 90 years and was a fierce woman. She was a trooper and lost her husband after she had her 8th child, my dad (at age 17). This loss was extremely difficult for my father and the rest of his family. My dad asked me to take videos and I finally put a short clip together. Everyone you see is part of my extended family (almost all) and this was a part of the grieving process. But enjoy!”

No crematorium curtains for these people. Other features of interest too, yes?

    Wow, this was so interesting, thank you. I’m intrIgued by Japanese culture and customs. Are they watching the cremation , it appears so? And to go on to inter the ashes ..very speedy and very hands on stuff. I loved the silk cover on the coffin… There’s a beautiful idea, an outside ‘shroud’ almost that the family could create… soft on the hard wood, easier to store in your bottom drawer than a coffin too. Lots to think about!
