|From Arizona Cemeteries|
My 104-year-old friend Eva Osburn was one of the people most recently interred here.
Customized remembrances at this cremation-only graveyard are small-scale but heartfelt. A hummingbird ornament adorns the grave on the left, while the flags of England the the United Kingdom mark the ashes of a parishioner who was born in England.
Some of the "All Angels", perhaps?
Here is a black and white version of one photo, by request.
I recently carried a crucifix at a funeral at St. Michael's. I didn't have ready access to my camera that morning, but there was a 21-gun salute for the retired Marine, something I'd never seen before in person. Taps was played, and also a hymn on bagpipes. The folding of a flag for the widow was done very slowly and deliberately, and the saluting was also done very slowly.
This is where I intend to be interred. I haven't made the arrangements, though.
Now on to East Lawn Palms!
