African Tribute

I took this photo this morning of wife E and two nieces, at a large funeral. The "mother" who died ordered African dress (see the previous post). OBSERVATION: I put the word "mother" in inverted commas here because there is no word for it really in English. The African word is "mama mncimnci" or "mamnci" for short, meaning one who had the place of a mother.
