Yesterday we buried my dad. He died in October and it took us this long to get things arranged for his cremains. I am glad our family had that closure. Although I watched him leave his body and know he was at rest long before now.
Mav spoke and one of the things he said was "it is like we are packing away an old suit for a friend who has gone on a trip and doesn't need it anymore." Mav is really cool.
The picture of my daughter and her cousin Oliver walking across the cemetery brought to mind this picture taken of them almost 4 years ago at my brother's wedding.
I am comforted to know they have each other because the truth is there will be more weddings and funerals in our lives. I hope Oliver will be there for her with the same love and support his dad has given me through out this process
