We keep friendly relations with Mereyon Islands, and the group of survivors and bereaved family occasionally visit the island to collect bones and to pray for the dead. 

In the year of 1976, there was a large-scale visit getting support from the Japanese government.  Many bones were collected.

The bones were burned at site, and the ashes were laid to rest at the Chidorigafuchi National Cemetery for the war dead.

I described the scene of burning the bones.

It is up to your imagination how to grasp the white cloud in the sky as mother’s hand, or buddha’s hand.
