Laying my dear father in law to rest

Friday, August 23, 2013

I didn't take pictures of any of the service to respect privacy but here are pictures of the surroundings.
When Brian and his sisters set his ashes free in the ocean along with beautiful flowers they floated towards a naval ship that was in the ocean too. Couldn't have been more fitting for the WWII Navy vet shot down in at Pearl Harbor.
Marina del Ray Ca was the location. A beautiful yacht was the transport.

I saw my first California seal next to a boat making typical seal sounds! Then after lunch I saw a tiny hummingbird on a flowering hedge. Such a sad day to see my husband cry and barely be able to stand. Most of all seeing my 90 yr old mother in law scream and cry broke my heart. Luckily her children surrounded her with tears,hugs and love.
