The Chinese hangs a picture of the deceased on the Funeral Hearse which is then taken in a procession to the burial ground.

The hearse was beautifully decorated with flowers and the picture of the deceased. In this case it was an elderly female - a much beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, niece, aunt, sister and wife to the family.

This vehicle was seen recently. Is it a rehearsal for what is to come?
 Is this UMNO's Funeral Hearse? Wonder where the burial ground will be?

Missed by many: Mourners accompanying the funeral procession at the Pay Fong School in Malacca yesterday. Many onlookers thronged the streets to catch a glimpse of Sim’s funeral procession before his cortege was brought to the Nirvana Memorial Park in Semenyih for burial.
