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.
