A Teacher Goes Home In A Biro!

41

my uncle fell ill and battled for a while before succumbing to the illness. He was a teacher and his children desired he be buried in a tool of his trade, a BIRO! Also on display are some cultural attributes of our people Ashanti region. On the morning of the funeral, as early as 5am the wailing begins and thats the aspect that really pushes your emotions! then a service is conducted especially if the deceased is a christian before internment at about noon. The family then sits at a large open place to recieve condolences from visitors who also contribute to the family in cash as a way of support. Here are a few pictures
