We were so impressed that after the service, everyone stayed and sang songs for the longest time. It felt so loving and comforting. We heard later that sometimes, people stay all night with the family singing and comforting them.
Keanu's mother has been sleeping on mats on the floor at the hospital morgue for several days. The official traditional Pohnpeian funeral will held tomorrow at the Dum home. Funerals last for several days with lots of food and drink. Family and friends will come and go and songs will be sung. Keanu's parents are not members of the church but his father wanted to be baptized but his health did not allow it. I'm sure the missionaries and ward members will be fellowshipping his mother in the future as they are now.
