Tombstone Tuesday - My Dad

There is no marker for this post.  My Dad was cremated and his ashes were scattered in one of his favorite fishing spots. 

Dad never wanted a funeral, or a memorial, or anything to mark his passing.  The family and a few friends did have a "Celebration of Life" wake at his house.

His ashes were scattered by my Brother and the rest of the family scattered roses into the water.  It was a touching way to say "Until we meet again."
