Cycle 11 – Item 268
29 (Tue) September 2020
at St Mary’s Hospital Funeral Home
-Jingwang, Eunpyeong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
MtG 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 would’ve been expected, and would’ve been honored, to fulfill this role. So, I just dropped by at dinner time and did my best, during the short visit, to provide some comfort to my best friend.
This is the second GMTD post to feature a funeral (see also 1.246 Wake Spread).
Feels a bit strange to rate the food under such circumstances. Apologies if it seems inappropriate.
