Bicycles offered instead of flowers at grandmother’s cremation

Following the service for Nantha Khuchonthara, 77, at the Pratu Lek crematorium in Tambon Wiang, her relatives and friends also presented 17 “funeral wreath” bicycles to students and qualified volunteers, as a merit-making for the deceased.

Natha’s son Pipat Khuchonthara, 45, said bicycles would be more useful than flowers so his relatives and friends, including those in a bicycle club “Jakkayan Peun 60”, presented the two-wheelers as funeral wreaths.
