It was rainy in the morning.

I was rather busy so that I overworked.

Tomorrow we have the third year memorial service of my father who passed away on August 17, 2015.
It's been about two years but we count as three years. After one year frrom the death the memorial service is called isshuki (一周忌), after two years it is called sankaiki (三回忌). We hold  the service at the graveyard. Then we have dinner.
I often think the death is the last present for the rest who meet at the funreral. Budddhist family usually have memorial services for several times after the death  so that we get together.
