Memorial Service & Ash Scattering was held
on October 15th in Hilo Bay, Big Island of Hawaii
19 degrees, 43.65' North / 155 degrees, 4.61' West

A beautiful morning out on the ocean.

The cremains where set up on the back of our 20' Bayliner boat  being surrounded by tropical orchids, anthuriums, as to honor this special moment and the beautiful surrounding... 


We started in the morning from Hilo Harbor.  A gorgeous day, clear sky and very calm.   The tropical air was clean and fresh, a nice morning to go out on the ocean.

We are about ready to scatter the ashes...


The ashes where scattered into the blue ocean accompanied by the tropical flowers. From this spot in the ocean one can see the beautiful Mauna Kea Mountain and the plume of the Volcano on a clear day.  In wintertime Mauna Kea can be snowcapped, which is very beautiful.

I am Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path that was laid, you see.
 
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work , to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh , a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee,
Remember me, but don't grieve for me,
for now I'm free..

 

TOGETHER FOREVER IN HAWAII
