My family and I visited my father’s grave last weekend because it was around the Higan and we needed to confirm whether the grave was damaged after the earthquake.
My father died eight years ago.
He always drank and smoked, even though he had asthma and diabetes.
So he didn’t have enough energy to overcome his sickness.
He was a moody person.
He often fought with other people and hit his children.
However, he was easily moved to tears and always helped other people.
I remember he wept buckets at my wedding. (Father of bride usually tears. )
He was completely clear about who his friends were and who his enemies were.
He ran a small construction related company with one other man.
However, he wasn’t a successful businessman because he was too trusting.
If he lived now, he would say
“Die young and leave a good-looking corpse. “
