Time to say goodbye.  

Sugar joined his brother  to bury his mom today next to her husband in a little grassy cemetery in the wilds of the Upper Midwest.  His mom has been with us in a box on a bedroom shelf for the last 15 years, cared for and thought of, but it was time to put her ashes in the ground.  I had visions of taking her to the wide-open ND plains and opening the box during a windy day but the brother needed a memorial, a place for future generations to come to when the genealogical urge strikes.  I think she would have liked that,  her sons coming together for her sake.  Wonderful lady.
