In late September 1992, I and Lin Xiang returned to Shanghai to visit relatives. After her daughter Wang Ying graduated from secondary school, she was assigned to work in an auto parts factory in Shanghai. Once on the evening shift, I hadn’t returned home until midnight. I do not trust, quietly went downstairs to the station to meet her. After waiting for more than half an hour, her daughter came down from a bus. “Dad, did you still come to pick me up so late?” The daughter was shocked and happy. She took my arm and walked. “In the middle of the night, when a girl comes home alone, how can I be relieved!” “It's good to be a dad, and it hurts me most!” said the daughter spoiled.
When staying at her parents's parents' house, she went to the roadside open space in front of the vegetable market every morning. After morning exercises, she waited for her mother-in-law. When she saw that she was ready to go home, I immediately greeted her and took the heavy food basket and walked with her. On the way, there are acquaintances curious to ask: "Aunt, who is this? Recently I have come to pick you up every morning." "It was my granddaughter who came back from Xinjiang to visit relatives." Mother-in-law said proudly.
In mid-November, I bid farewell to my mother at the Nanlong County Hospital An Longdi’s home and returned to my parents’ home. I heard that my mother-in-law was hospitalized. I was in a hurry and went straight to the hospital. In the emergency room, the old mother-in-law was lying unconscious on the bed and unconscious. The whole family was guarding the patients, and each one was restless, feeling heavy and overwhelmed. I whispered to Lotus: “What happened to my mother, how could it be so serious?” she said sadly. “This morning, the mother was still good and went out to buy food. In the morning, she went to play at home and suddenly fainted. After I knew the whole mountain, I borrowed a rickshaw and rushed to take her to the hospital. At the time, she quietly told me about my home and her home. After she was sent to the emergency room, she was examined and diagnosed. The doctor said it was serious. I am afraid that the cerebral hemorrhage is nothing but tonight, let us prepare for the future." Lotus shed tears as she said, and I was distraught. The team burst into tears.
When the next day was dawning, the on-duty doctor said: "The patient is going to die soon. You must prepare for the incident." I went home with Lee Kuan Yew and helped my old father-in-law to lead my daughter and Jia Jia to the hospital. I saw the last side of my mother-in-law. . Lotus and Lin Ping tears, carefully wipe the body to the mother, put on new clothes. The whole family burst into tears, sad and sad, heartbreaking. I and the whole mountain lifted the body of my mother and pushed it east to the morgue.
Back home, everyone gathered to discuss how to do funerals. All mountains went to relatives to report their demise. Lin Ying and Lin Ping went to buy shrouds, offerings, and wreaths. I and Lin Xiang and Hung Ho arranged mourning halls at home. Everyone worked together, worked closely, and during the day, they were busy managing funerals. They received friends and relatives who had come to mourn and lost their lives at night. At the memorial service, the whole mountain made a eulogy on behalf of the family. The old mother-in-law’s funeral was solemn and decent. Afterwards, the old father-in-law and relatives and friends were all satisfied and praised the filial piety of their children.
At night, I went to bed with my old father-in-law. One night, the old father-in-law pissed up in the middle of the night and returned to the bedroom without turning on the lights, groping for something, and then went to bed again. The next morning, he summoned his children and said, “I have some savings here. It was originally prepared for your aging mother, and I was afraid that I would walk in front of her. Now she is gone, I don’t need it anymore. I’m also old. If you suddenly get out like your aging mother, this money will not be found.I thought for a night and decided to leave a little bit of it, and the rest is for you to divide. The four children are four thousand yuan each. Do you have any? opinion?"
Listening to the old man said this, everyone was shocked. Originally thought that the elderly did not have any savings, and they could not think of saving so much money. Everyone does not have the heart to ask elderly people for pension money, so that he can keep pensions. The old father-in-law was stubborn and insisted on giving money to the children. This is a piece of old man's heart. It is better to respect it than life. Everyone has acquiesced in their own mind. Take one each and save it.
A few days later, I and the family of the old father-in-law went to Songhe Park in Jiading to purchase the cemetery for the old mother-in-law. The cemetery has lush forests, clear water, fresh air, and a beautiful and peaceful environment. It is an ideal paradise for undead sleep.
After completing the funeral of the old mother-in-law, I and Linxiang bid farewell to their families and boarded the train to the west to leave the border.
