My mom's younger brother Mike died of cancer on Saturday, March 2, 2013, two days before my dad. He had a graveside service the day after my dad's funeral. His took longer because he was cremated. My uncle Tom's motorcycle gang gave him the escort to the cemetery for his "last ride".
His box was seriously the SMALLEST box I've ever seen..... not that I've seen a lot of cremations. But out of the three, his was TINY! Look at the flowers next to it...him... His box is so small. I swear that he is not all in there.
My cousin Kandi, Mike's daughter gave a tribute and Kandi's boys, Mike's grandson's, sang a song to him. My cousin Tom Tolman made banana muffins for everyone when it was over. It was a nice tribute. I think he would have liked it.
