 Eight ten - year - old couples make wills in their will: ashes together with roses in the river


The Chinese business news does not disturb the leadership, do not do farewell to the body, and will be buried in the water. A 82 year old couple in Xian made a will: not to buy a cemetery and scatter ashes to Weihe.

On November 4, Mr. Wang Lao, an 82-year-old citizen of Xian, called the news hotline of China Business Daily to say that he was greatly touched by the ecological burial methods such as deep burial, tree burial, lawn burial and wall burial advocated by the Chinese Business Daily on October 30. He asked if a water burial could be added to the ecological burial. The companion wants to scatter ashes to Weihe after death.

My wife and I are 82 years old, and she is 3 months older than me. Mr. Wang said with a smile in an interview with a reporter from China Business Daily yesterday: In August this year, I had a disease. At that time, I discussed with my wife and children. I had to make a will to bury them in the way I liked. After discussion, we decided to bury them in water. Whoever died first put his ashes in the funeral home, and when his wife died, we put them together. Scatter to Weihe, lets spread some rose petals and let them flow eastward to the Yellow River and pour into Bohai...

Faced with the reporters questions, Mr. Wang Lao said, Because the Weihe River is the mother river of Xian people, flowing eastward into the Yellow River, which is the mother river of northern Chinese people. After death, it can return to the embrace of mother. The reason for spreading rose petals is that our old couple are both in their 80s now, and they are happy and mourning. When the time comes, the doll will scatter ashes and rose petals and leave a fragrant smell on her hands. Then she will think of her parents when she smells the fragrance of flowers. During the conversation, Mr. Wang showed the reporters the written funeral disposal will, which was written by hand. At the testators office, the two old men solemnly wrote their names on it.

Yesterday morning, a reporter from China Business Daily contacted Mr. Wang Laos youngest son, who said he had just learned the news himself.

We must respect childrens opinions and follow their wishes to deal with this matter. When the reporter asked how to pay homage to the old man if there was no cemetery, he was silent for a moment, and then said, If you have a heart to pay homage, you will miss the old man in your own way.

It is not forbidden to scatter ashes into Weihe.

Chinese Business Journal reporters learned that in 2012, the Xian Municipal Government promulgated the Opinions on Implementing the Reform of Funeral and Burial in Urban and Rural Areas and the Construction of Public Cemeteries, pointing out that the construction of public cemeteries (ashes hall) in cities should aim at saving land, protecting the environment, changing customs and reducing the burden of the masses, and adopt ashes hall (walls). Ecological burial is the main form of planting and burying, tree burial and lawn burial. In addition, we should promote the establishment of land-saving ecological burial reward and compensation system in places where conditions permit, include the ecological burial method which does not occupy or occupy less land into the scope of reward and compensation, and encourage the establishment of unified Memorial facilities for those who do not retain ashes.

Yesterday, a reporter from the Chinese Business Journal called the staff of the funeral and burial office in Xian. The other side said, There is no precedent for water burial in Xian at present, and there are no relevant regulations. It is also permissible for individuals to scatter ashes on the Weihe River.

It is understood that the implementation of funeral reform in Shandong Province points out that we should actively promote green ecological burials such as tree burials, sea burials, ashes scattering, flower bed burials, lawn burials, and carry out public welfare activities such as ashes scattering, sea burials, tree burials and other festival ecological burials. Last year, Beijing issued the Circular on Further Perfecting the Subsidies for Maritime and Natural Burial of Ash in Beijing, encouraging the promotion of Maritime and Natural Burial of Ash, and providing free funeral services for the dead residents of Beijing who choose to bury their ashes at sea or naturally buried their ashes by means of purchasing services from the government. The burial in Zhoushan, Zhejiang, started in 2010. As of September this year, 621 cases of burial have been carried out. The cost of burial at sea in Zhoushans household registration population is totally free, and the award of burial at sea ranges from 2000 yuan to 5000 yuan.

It is a good change to accept water burial.

From preserving ashes to preserving ashes, ecological burial is the two revolution in funeral customs. In order to save resources and protect the environment, ecological burial has been put forward for some years. But up to now, when it comes to ecological burial, everyone supports it. Once it involves most of them, they shake their heads, which is the biggest embarrassment faced by ecological burial. So that we should choose the ecological burial, which is called entangled farewell by the media. Taking Wuhan as an example, which started exploring ecological burial earlier, on the eve of the Qingming Festival this year, the Wuhan Civil Affairs Bureau said that only about 40,000 deceased people had been practicing ecological burial since 1997, and the selection rate was less than 1%.

In recent years, the price of cemeteries has remained high, and the cost of various funeral and burial ceremonies has been surprisingly high. In the complaint of unable to die, the ecological burial with more comparative advantages has not been able to take advantage of the situation. According to the Guidelines on Further Promoting Funeral Reform and Promoting Funeral Development issued at the beginning of this year, By 2020, the proportion of eco-funeral sites such as ashes storage, tree burial and sea burial will reach more than 50%. How far is the ecological burial from us? Macroscopically speaking, this is not only a matter of ecological environmental protection, but also a matter of changing ideas or customs. As the saying goes, frozen three feet is not a days cold. The change of ideas requires a process. It requires time and patience, especially in matters involving death. Specifically, it depends on the wishes of the elderly and the degree of support of their families. Obviously, the choice of the old couple in Xian can not alter the status quo of the marginalization of ecological burial as a whole, but according to the reports, the old couples wills to scatter ashes on the Weihe River have an unusual significance for the city, because, according to the relevant department staff, Xian There is no precedent for water burial in Anne. In other words, there is still a long way to go for ecological burial to become the mainstream of funeral methods, but water burial is being accepted as an ecological burial method, which is always a good change.
