小綠: 一晌年光有限身

Filed under: 小綠步行日誌 The Walk

英倫春月,露冷侵寒。早上七時三十分啟程,謝錦霞已急不及待,全速向倫敦以南樸茨茅 斯出發;一個多小時才擠出了倫敦市中心。隨著時速八十哩;三個小時才趕到波車士打火葬場;十點鐘的追悼儀式完了,遺體剛火化了。

只有依士靈頓華人協會的白色花圈,支援中國民運動紅色花圈。房東容先生一家五口,一位幾十年的老同事東尼,一位殯儀館員工,市政府一名公眾保障科官員。走了三小時長途,送不了巴利最後一程, 謝錦霞懊惱不已。「人生到處知何似,欲似飛鴻踏雪泥」;趕不上就是趕不上。他的骨灰,將會追隨2001年逝世母親的骨灰,灑遍青青草地上,化作春泥更護花。

相知相惜十七載,而今支援中國民運又弱一人: 鳴呼巴利,謙謙君子;侍母至孝,晨昏問省。中英一貫,悠悠民主;一十七載,與爾同在。尚饗。

回程無話可說。去年六四大使館前,還說不要拍照留念,往後機會可多著呢!一轉身,卻又消失了;連送最後一程也錯失了。

遽然而逝,沒親人,沒遺囑;一切物事都由市政府處置。奈何!

Very sad indeed. We all move into the same route at the end. Maybe we should leave our will and will invite our friends or loved one to join our pre-arranged funeral. Talking of democratic movement is out of fashion nowaday. China will have democracy one day, we just need to wait for that day.

One can be late for anything but arriving late for the funeral service was most upsetting. I remember Barry used to say when he was alive that he hated driving to London from Portsmouth during the daytime because of heavy traffic jam, so he always tried to drive in the middle of the night when he came up to London just to avoid the traffic. Well, probably Barry was saying from heaven (or wherever he has now landed):”Hey guys, didn’t I tell you about the traffic before”!!

Certainly, it was most annoying!!!

相知相惜十七載
人事多磨千百何
南岸水边好去处
