Cleaning and dressing father's body in funeral

pen, 13 x 17.5 cm

Father died of heart disease on June 4th, 2012 at the age of 89 years old. 
I noted while the morticians were cleaning, 
shrouding with Korean traditional paper and hemp cloth. 
Just a lump...a human being.
I prayed his eternal peace. 
Thank you, Dad, so much!

많은 것이 후회가 되는군요. 아버지의 부재를 아직은 실감못하는지도 모르겠습니다. 감사합니다.
