Burying my parents was no easy task. In our religion, The Living Lamb, burials weren’t really any different from the rest of the country.


The priest held a nice sermon in memory of my mom and dad. I asked to have a live choir perform Requiem by Mozart instead of the ordinary music, as per their final wishes.


A tear dropped from my eye as I told the priest: “I just wish I could have said good bye. They had to die so fast.”


“Don’t worry, son. Just tell them now.” I walked up to their caskets, wiping my eyes as I went. Looking into their terrified faces I uttered: “Good bye mom and dad. And don’t worry. Once we place you into the ground, suffocation won’t take long.”
