I wish to be cremated
Distribute my ashes equally:
My parents, if living. If not, the family Urn. Mix me with my ancestors for all time.
My brother Vincent. Release me in your favorite fishing hole.
Jeremy, Jen, Nolen, and Haley. Scatter me on the wind from a train in Colorado or New Mexico.
Amy and Josh, Feed me to the fishes at the bottom of the Black Canyon where you took me that day.
Kelcey. Let me warm my bones on the rock in the back 40, on the Hogback, on the sandstone along the Purgatoire at Dinosaur Tracks, or just before the Kelsey campground along the Platte on the flat rock that juts into the river. Your choice.
Gene. Return me to Mother Ocean at Sherwood’s in Waimanalo so my ashes will rejoin the part of my soul which lingers there. You know where.
