My father was selected in 1962 to serve as a commune cadre in Yuyao Shenggui Commune, known as Secretary Zhang. Later, Shenggui Commune merged with Hongqiao Commune to become Chengbei Commune. He was still the secretary of the commune and later took charge of education and propaganda.
During the fourteen years of working in the Chengbei Commune, he used to live and eat in the countryside, and he took me to live in the commune and the village. During the "Double Grab", I was also asked to participate in seedling pulling exercises, which made me feel the country life since I was a child and get closer to the farmers.
Today, talk about some of my father’s farmer friends.
The branch road of the west building of Shengyi Village is the seat of the original Shenggui Commune. The current mold city is located here.
My father got into one another with the farmers in the West Building. Among them is an old party member named Lou Bai'an, who is six years older than my father and is 93 years old this year. I keep talking about my parents. My father would also ask me to accompany him to visit old friends, and sometimes my mother would also go with him. In recent years, with the increase of age, the two elderly people have been inconvenient to go out. I often visited Uncle Bai'an on behalf of my father. On weekdays, the elderly would also call to greet them. An "Lao Zhang" and a "Bai'an" are very cordial. It is difficult to understand the kind of relationship between the two parties if they have not experienced it.

Uncle Baian is an expert in farming and has talents in all aspects, but his body is relatively thin. He used to take care of flowers and plants in Longshan Hotel, and he also gave me the coriander he had grown.

The other is Lou Bingkang, three years older than my father, who belonged to the same household (eating, living, and working together). Today (2016.10.01) happened to be the National Day. The old man knew that everyone was resting, so he took the 205 bus and walked to the Yangming apartment with crutches to find out if there is someone named Zhang Demao and his son named Zhang Zhong. where? Fortunately, my nanny happened to be buying vegetables and passing by the gatehouse. As soon as he heard that he was looking for my father, he helped him to the house upstairs, allowing the elderly to meet an old friend whom he had not met for many years. I rushed over when I learned. When the old man saw me, he said: Are you Ah Zhong? ! The words are so kind! Just like the greeting 50 years ago. Acomber's mentality in my father's house is so stable and natural. So I immediately recorded the touching scene of the 90-year-old and 87-year-old.

Uncle Acombe has been a production team leader for nearly 40 years. He studied cooking in a hotel in Shanghai when he was young. After retiring, he has been cooking in the canteen of Fenluyan Primary School for many years. He is also an old party member. The old man is very lucky, and Xian Sun is already in college.
On the way to escort Uncle Akang back to the Xilou Natural Village north of Jinchang Road, Mould City, I thought: my father had returned to work in the municipal government in 1976, but the friendship he established with the peasants back then, 40 years later, today The old people's hearts are still so strong, it is because of the deep emotional connection.
There is also a man named Lou Qiao. I call him Uncle Ao. He is four years younger than my father. He is an honest man. He has been in contact with my family for decades, and now he is still the messenger who contacted Uncle Baan.
Back then, the friendship between cadres and the masses was so deep, how could there be difficulties that could not be overcome?
1. On the morning of November 6, 2016, Uncle Ao came to my father's place by bus. We had lunch together, but he reported to us that Uncle Akang was driving across Zhongshan Road Danfeng on a tricycle a few days ago. The culvert at the Xincun overpass was accidentally turned out of the vehicle due to the inertia of the slope, causing two ribs to break and puncture the lungs. Although rescued for more than ten days, he died on October 28. What Uncle Ao said made us stunned! how can that be? Come to my house again on October 3rd! After I called the old man’s second son, Brother Baoqiang, it was confirmed. It really makes us feel distressed and upset.
2. Only a few days later, I learned that my father's old friend, Uncle Lou Baian, whom I respect, passed away on November 11, 2016. Let me regret it: since I visited on behalf of my father on the 29th of the twelfth lunar month, I did not squeeze time to visit uncle again!
3. What makes me even more uncontrollable is that on the evening of September 6, 2017, my father also suffered from a cold and blocked the respiratory tract. He was sent to a hospital in an ambulance without first aid, and he left us forever!
Three of the four elderly people mentioned in the article have been farewell to us one after another in less than a year, and can no longer hear the insults of my three fathers who experienced the wind and frost, which made me fall into infinite sadness. ! Supplement 2017.09.19
