So my husband and I wanted something funky to hold Charles’ ashes. We finally picked them up from the funeral home on his birthday. Well, my husband did. And we chose this basket online from Etsy on the far left–with the tassels. I sort of copied what Tamara did for Logan. She got a nifty, creative basket for Logan’s ashes and I liked that idea.
The ashes barely fit in there. The whole thing is stuffed. But we got them in there with some determination and patience.
I do have two children and Richard had sent me a recent headshot which is below on the same shelf with his brother. I also have a picture of Richard and Charles together as children on the far left. (Not shown in this picture, however.) My friend Tamara flew in from Colorado recently and brought me the lovely colorful, tile you see on the upper right.
I may still get a headstone for Charles and do the burial thing. But I’m not ready yet. Do we buy three plots? I’m not sure what Richard would do one day? With families so spread out these days, this is apparently a big challenge according to my friend who works at a funeral home.
Took just under three years to do this. But glad we finally made some kind of decision.
