    Spreading her ashes

    Think I'll need a little extra strength Saturday about 2pm. We're finally gonna have a memorial service for my wife and spread her ashes in the place where there are several favorite dogs and horses buried. She loved them and this is what she wanted. Darn but it's hard to type this. I'm gonna open with the story of how how her old redneck daddy pulled a gun when I announced I was gonna marry his daughter, then said "I guess you'll do" when I didn't run. Darn but I miss him and her momma. Then I have a preacher friend to do a proper service, after which he will play "Amazing Grace" on his pipes. Sure hope she likes it, she never wanted a fancy funeral. Gotta go for right now. GW

    When it didn’t look good for my wife, I asked her if she still wanted to be cremated, or did she want to be buried next to my mom in the cemetary. She said she still wanted to be cremated and placed on the mantle above the fireplace so she could keep an eye on me. I know what you are going through. Stay strong and God bless.

    My wife has said the same thing!

    GW, I know it has been a long and terrible road for you and your family! I wish I lived closer ...... May God bless you and comfort you at this time. May He guide you and hold you in the palm of His hands......AMEN Paul
    When guns are outlawed only criminals and the government will have them and at that time I will see very little difference in either!

    I lost both my parents last year. They had a lot at the local cemetary. Put up a marker that looks like a little stone house. 8 spaces for urns, the urn is sealed into place with a stone cut from the marker. And a brass plaque that tells the tale.

    I'm thinking my wife and I will join them when our time comes.

    You'll be in my thoughts and prayers GW. Walk in the light.

    very sorry for your loss.

    We lost my oldest sister two years ago. She was 53. She loved to ride with my brother in law on their Harley, and I started riding about 5 years ago. we always said we were going to ride together and never did.
    I was visiting with her after trying out a new bike, and she said she wanted to go for a ride when I got it.
    She never got a chance, and passed 8 weeks later.

    Ive got a vial of her ashes, and she takes every ride with me. Not what we had in mind.

    It will be a rough day, a sad day, but a good day to have loved ones around.

    take care brother.

    Hi GW,

    You will do just fine... She is still in your heart... My old Dad would tell you at times like these, Heaven is a better place with her in it.

    You will see her again sir. Let that be a mantle of hope for you. Hope leads to faith. You will see her again.

    You are in my prayers. I would say hold fast to the Lord, but in a time like this it is the Lord who holds fast to you.

    GW, my prayers and heart are with you.
    Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
