We gathered together on a beautiful Sunday to hold our "Ashes Ceremony". My Aunt Carol, my mom and I mixed together G-pa Herb's and G-ma Mary's ashes. Mom really did most of the work. Then, mom bought some colorful containers at Big Lots so we could each have a little bit to throw. We drove up to Golden Gate Canyon, near Golden, CO, and found a beautiful spot to throw the ashes. It really was a great time! Rather than a somber, tearful occasion, we had a joyful celebration! I so enjoy that we are a fun loving family! My Uncle Scott came all the way from Bakersfield, CA to join us. We hadn't seen him in about 25 years!
Can you see the washer in the bottle? We are guessing it's from one of G-ma's surgeries!
