China News Service, May 26 (Reporter Chen Jing) Shanghai, which had been clear for two days, started to rain quietly last night.

  When the rain breaks, the clouds gather, the sky is full of haze, and the raindrops fall sporadically, as if the sky is weeping.

At 8:30 in the morning, the farewell ceremony of Wu Mengchao, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and "Father of Chinese Hepatobiliary Surgery", was held in Shanghai Longhua Funeral Home.

  At 13:02 on the 22nd of this month, Wu Mengchao passed away in Shanghai at the age of 99.

Since the 23rd, Shanghai Oriental Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital has built a mourning hall. Relatives, close friends, colleagues, students, and patients of Wu Lao bowed and presented flowers to Wu Lao's portrait.

Some patients heard of Wu Laoxian's death, and made a special trip to bid farewell to Wu.

  Speaking of Mr. Wu, the patients and their family members couldn't help tears.

The friendship between doctors and patients has long been buried in my heart by the help of Wu's life-saving grace and many years of care.

People in Shanghai sent bouquets of flowers to express their condolences.

  The majestic "Internationale" was played in the mourning hall outside the hospital, and there seemed to be a bit of inspiring power in the solemn mourning.

Zhang Peng, who has worked with Mr. Wu for more than ten years, told reporters that "Internationale" is Mr. Wu's favorite song, and he would often listen to it by himself during his lifetime.

  Sun Yuming, director of the Department of Anesthesiology at Shanghai Oriental Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital, believes that "The Internationale" is a summary and portrayal of the fight against disease, the common enemy of the mentor throughout his life.

Some people collected hundreds of comments from netizens to the funeral home to give to Mr. Wu.

  In the hall, the elegiac couplet on both sides of the portrait of Wu Lao outlines the life of the deity: "The model of all the people, Pei Tao Yu Li casts the sincere and great doctors, and strives to revitalize the cause of medicine."

In the solemn background, the old Wu in the portrait still had a familiar smile. He looked at the younger students with kindness and expectation.

  Early in the morning, many people came to Longhua Funeral Home to bid farewell to Mr. Wu.

Ms. Liu who came to send flowers was a family member of the patient, and she was deeply moved by Mr. Wu's medical ethics.

Ms. Wang Renhua sent a wreath and wrote a poem to commemorate Mr. Wu.

She wrote a poem for Wu Lao: Who is the lancet to regain the courage, cry Si Gong in the depths of the hall.

She said that the friendship established in the interview has continued, and the noble character of Wu Lao Bo's love, sincerity, and compassion has always moved her deeply.

  In the rain, wreaths and bouquets kept coming.

Some people entrusted courier brother Xiao Li to send bouquets.

Xiao Li said that the first batch was delivered at half past six.

"Guo Shi Wushuang Chinese backbone, Mr. Go all the way well!" "The benevolent doctor, Grandpa Wu goes all the way well"... On the bouquet, people left messages.
