Then you are given a receipt with enrolment number.
Whole process will take about 10-12 minutes per person, however, where Qing system in place, it can take up to 4 hours

Two brothers deaths in the house, same day

Two brothers deaths in the house, same day

When younger brother 18, returned back, he saw his brother 28, already dead.
He too died the same way, same day.

A well to do family with land property, car, rooms on rental etc

Now, there is no one left in the house.

No brother, no sister, no father, no mother

Don’t understand why they did it, particularly the younger one.

Lord, take them into your arms.
