Going to scatter mom's ashes next week
August 26, 2017 6:53pm CST
Mom has been gone 10 years this last February. My brother has kept her on his bookshelf all this time. He had thoughts of burying her with her first son who died at 2 years old, and also had thoughts of scattering her ashes off the same mountain her 2nd son was scattered off of when he died in 1992. At this point his own health is failing. He's had 11 heart attacks, is on his 2nd pace maker, and isn't sure how much longer he'll be around, he's been trying even harder to find a final resting place for mom before he's not around any longer. Well next weekend I plan to go camping near the mountain where her 2nd son's ashes were scattered. He'd climbed the mountain once, (he had Cystic Fibrosis so mountain climbing was a huge accomplishment) and so that's where they decided to scatter his ashes when he died 25 years ago. So I told my brother I'd take mom up there next weekend and reunite her with her 2nd son. I think she's happy to be off his bookshelf, LOL.. but for the next week she'll be in the stow and go of my van! Pic is from the top of a different mountain that I visited last summer.

That is touching. How did it go? I finally figured out what to do with some of my mom's ashes (after her body was used in donation they cremated her). The place I paint pottery also lets you paint glass, and canvas. The pottery won't "take" the ashes mixed with paint, but the glass or canvas will.
