We live on the same street as the cemetary so funeral processions pass by our house about every Saturday.
They consist of a couple of cars with flowers on them and then either a marching band or a speaker system playing very loud music
Then comes the hearse followed by all the people mostly in tricycles or on foot. There sometimes are a few cars. They often walk a long ways.
Often the funerals are done in the homes and they have a service every night for five or more nights.
This one was at the church but still there was a service everynight. Our missionaries in that ward, Elders Blackham and Tsunoda, did a great deal to help each night, they spoke, they played the piano, and lead music ect.One night they had all our zone missionaries sing a song and Kent and I spoke
The caskets are about the same as ours at home, Some graves are below ground and some are above in cement vaults. This one was a young man about 24 who was a returned missionary and just an exceptional young man, from what we have been told. He suddenly had kidney failure about three months ago and even with dialysis he died quite fast.
