Cleaning up papa's place
Jeremias pulls weeds from the gravesite of his father. His father died in 2000. His mother died a year later. The visit to the cemetery in August 2007 was his first in about a year. Jeremias used to visit his father's grave once a week, with the help of his grandfather who gave him travel money. But last year, his grandfather passed away.
