Honor & Celebrate
That is what we did 10 days ago as we laid our brother to rest. As a Marine Veteran who had served in the Vietnam War. He was buried with full honors. Our sister Darlene made sure of that.
She was with him when he began his eternal journey, and she was there to make sure he was buried with honor; as a veteran, as a brother, a son, a father, a grandfather, and Uncle.
Our sister shared stories of of him; his guitar playing, his painting, and how he loved to surf. It was a beautiful service, something Ted would have appreciated.
Then we celebrated
We danced and sang and danced some more. I think Ted was dancing with us.
Thank you dear sister not only for making sure Ted was honored and celebrated, but for bringing us all together and showing us that though we may be flawed, we are a strong family.
Sending love and light out into the universe, in honor of Ted and the legacy he leaves behind.
