With others of older generation I sat before the lovely urn

Betty's, my late wife's sister, ashes ready to be committed to the ground

Behind me was the spot where my wife's ashes were committed some

twenty years ago.


After gospel songs, Scrpture, sermon (by a grandson) memories were


I recalled her hospitality and friendliness, times of gathering aroun

her organ and singing gospel songs

She will ever be in my heart

She may well be sharing with her sister, my wife, in Heaven. as they

worship together the One who provided their way to Heaven


Life goes on and hope, sustained in part by those who've gone before/



Graveside (c)2014  Quentin Clingerman
