at St Mary’s Hospital Funeral Home
-Jingwang, Eunpyeong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with my friend
One of my best friends lost his father yesterday in a tragic traffic accident. In light of changing times, further accelerated by pandemic prudence, the all-night all-family wake has been scaled back, with only a few family members attending the wake in shifts, mourners visiting only during business hours. Friends of the family are also no longer expected to hold vigil (see 1.246 Wake Spread). I dropped by at dinner time and did my best, during the short visit, to provide some comfort to my friend.
