I Come to the Garden - - -
Here in this lovely garden spot - - -
On Burr Ridge near Hillsboro, Wisconsin,
Dad lovingly relinquished his years of caring for mom by personally placing the chest containing her ashes into the ground.
While many of us came to share with him in that moment - - - only he carried her ashes. He said he promised her fifty-six years ago that he would take care of her and that he intended to keep that promise to the end.
