To Qingming again,
Will you remember them?
Those who have died,
They are gone
But you know very well
In your world,
They did not leave completely,
Many years have passed,
Ta will still make you cry ...
Regret, remorse, perseverance, heartache, miss, sadness,
Are pinned in these deep eulogy:
You walked too fast and didn't even leave the last word, so you left with regret.
We have too much to say to you, there is too much to do for you, but you just hurried away, leaving us with endless pain, making us uneasy for life!
We believe that it is only your weak body that has passed away, and your eternal soul will be sublimated.
愿逝去的亲人安息！ The deceased is dead, the living is so, may the dead relatives rest in peace!

At the same time, pay attention to fire safety, and leave after the incense candle is finished.
The general process of Qingming grave sweeping
According to custom, the order of sacrifice is to first sweep the grave, that is, to clean the cemetery. Second is sacrifice. This process is very important. One is to reflect on grief, and the other is to feel forefathers in order to pray for the aura of mountains and rivers, which is often referred to as "feng shui".
When sweeping the grave, people brought food, fruit, paper money and other items to the graveyard. Food was sacrificed in front of the graves of their loved ones, and then the paper money was incinerated to plant new soil for the grave and repair the grave. You must press some paper money on it, let others see it, know that there are descendants in this grave, and then worship with a hoe.

Plant a tree
Cold food passed, Qingming arrived, it was time to plant more trees.
