Family news

It's been a bit hot out.

A neighbor died: she was 95 and lived with her son down the street.

We went to visit the wake: here they hold the wake in the house, with people sitting with the casket day and night (often with music) until the funeral. Often the funeral is delayed until family can fly in from overseas.

Nearly everyone has relatives working and/or living overseas, partly because there are no jobs and the jobs that are here pay poorly, and partly because they are supporting the rest of their families.
