Continuing our “Roadmap for Adventure”
Even the seemingly simple and ordinary events in life have great power and meaning.
June 15th, 2013: Mike’s Memorial Celebration. Guests wrote farewell messages to Mike on sticky notes attached to balloons.
Thank you to our musicians: Liz Cutter on the flute, Kirk Utzinger violin, Joann Armstrong keyboard.
The first two verses of Jay Ungar’s composition, Ashokan’s Farewell:
The sun is sinking low in the sky,
The pines and the willows know soon we will part.
There’s a whisper in the wind of promises unspoken,
And a love that will always remain in my heart.
My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter,
The magic of moving as one,
And a time we’ll remember long ever after,
The moonlight and dancing are done
August 10, 2013: We sprinkled Mike’s ashes, gracing the Montana land he loved.
His garden sculptures fly freely over Frenchman’s Bench in Lewistown, where it all began.
