This concluding chapter recounts the events when the bodies of the author's parents were excavated and transferred together into a new coffin. The author's father had a thirty-year lease, but his mother only had five years, and the author decided to move his mother's remains and put them together with that of his father. The worker in charge of the dead started digging up the parents' bodies as the new coffin, where the bodies would be put together, was prepared nearby. After digging up the parents' remains, the worker dumped them all in together.
