Memorial Service & Ash
Scattering was held
on 12/8/2009 at Whittington Beach Park 1:45 PM
Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
It was a beautiful afternoon at Whittington
Beach Park. It was sunny with a nice onshore ocean breeze.
The cremains where set up on one of the tables right at the
ocean being surrounded by tropical orchids and other flowers as
to honor this special moment and
the beautiful surrounding... we played their special song
"Stardust" performed by Nat "King" Cole as the family
had requested. To listen to "their" special song you can
go to YouTube.com .. here is the link:
Just as we were scattering the ashes a couple of Monarch
Butterflies hovered around us dancing in the wind, just as if
the spirit of this nice couple was dancing together in the air
enjoying a beautiful moment in paradise.
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
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
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..
