Traditional African photo of body in coffin, St. Luke's Church funeral for Alimamy and the huge following of grievers at his funeral and graveside. This is not the usual funeral, Alimamy is given this lavish funeral as a gesture of love and respect for all he has done for the poor and sick in his beloved Salone. Most cannot afford a funeral or definitely not a coffin as nice as this one.
