Last night we buried Chris' ashes.

Chris' family and mine, along with Jeff (Chris' very best friend) and Jodi, gathered for an informal ceremony. We buried the last of Chris' earthly existence in the ground on the property of my parents in Afton. Rob, (Chris' brother) and his family were in town, and it was important for to have them present.

I was glad for the time to consider how best do this. In the end, I decided on something very different than I originally planned. And I'm so very happy with it.

I will let the pictures tell the story.

Jeff prayed and read some Scripture

Steve & Rob (Chris' brothers) buried the ashes

Above the ashes, we planted Chris' favorite tree--a Russian Olive
