Today my family and I went to Greenwood Cemetery where my sister's ashes sit. According to my mom, today is a good and lucky day on the Chinese calendar. We have to go and pay our respects for the first time within the first 49 days of her death. My parents brought flowers to tape to her niche in the crematory. We walked across the path to the other building, passing a tranquility garden on our way there. This is not real. How is it that I am going to visit my sister's ashes?
