Karen (1986 - 2004) was cremated at the Wat Prathong with both Christian and Buddhist rites. Representatives from the embassy, and the forensic pathologist who made the positive dental identification attended. The ashes will be collected by Karen's mother (Caroline) on Monday 14 March, and a death certificate issued.
I'm tired. I am glad we went, and I am glad Fabien was there. There is a sense of closure about all this.
