纪念阎先生:六七 – 家人亲友最后的告别

这是阎先生女儿用英文叙述的追思会和葬礼思绪和场景,中文由友人译出。

Memorial Service (11/25/2020)
We honored Dad in a beautiful service, where we felt the presence from not only family and friends, but also all his readers. The room was overflowing with flowers, filling up the secondary room in a moving display of love and support!

追思会 (二〇二〇年十一月二十五号)
怀着无比悲痛的心情, 我们为父亲举行了隆重的追悼仪式。我们不仅感受了家人和朋友们的支持, 而且也体会到了所有读者的厚爱。两个房间都布满鲜花,宁静中, 盈灌了大家的深厚关爱与沉痛哀悼。

一世贤良润物无声千人益
满腹博学涛滔不尽万户传

修身齐家论道评天下
厚德载物克勤携众生

——阎先生内弟海潮献的挽联和花篮

Sea Burial (12/7/2020)
On the 3rd day after we received Dad’s ashes in a beautiful, Himalayan rock salt urn, we went to the ocean and laid him to rest. Dad “jumped waves” with us one last time, and we saw so many rainbows on this beautiful, cloudless, warm December day. The sky and water were so blue, and the waves were like comforting pats on our shoulder telling us that Dad is here and loves us. We felt deeply blessed that we could fulfil his wishes of returning to the sea and to nature, being part of all of us and the universe once more.

海葬仪式(二〇二〇年十二月七号)
父亲的骨灰盛入一个由喜马拉雅山盐岩石琢造的精致器皿。在一个阳光明媚的日子,我们最后一次与父亲乘船“海游”。夕阳斜照下,波浪翻腾,水光粼粼,彩虹熠熠。海鸟追逐中,小船乘风破浪,摇摆颠簸,浪花翻转,似乎嬉戏着酷爱“踏浪”的父亲……

最后,父亲的骨灰浸入碧波如玉的大海,与在天之灵永久聚合,实现了他生前的愿望: 回归大海和自然。从此,他永驻于我们的记忆,永生于浩渺的宇宙。

Our Uncle also adapted lyrics from a beloved American song, and sang this at Dad’s sea burial. 

Farewell

Country road
take you home
to the place
where you belong
the Gulf of Mexico
the oceans of the Earth
the planet of the universe
and to eternity

我们的舅舅改编了一首经典的乡村歌曲, 在海葬仪式上唱颂我们远去的父亲。

送别

乡间路
回归的征途
到达一个
属于你的蜃楼
墨西哥海湾
润泽四海的涛流
沐浴星辰的曦光
翼翔永恒的宇宙

Love,
润涛的女儿
