I know this may seem ridiculous, but maybe she does. (I started a ramble but it's gone.) This thought is definitely for us, and not for the deceased.
Anyway, I still talk my late husband. (Trust me, he doesn't answer.) Call me nuts. No doubt that I miss him. Whenever I am leaving for PV, I tell him that I am leaving for somewhere that he loved, and hope he wishes me well, and tell him that I will say hello to the place for him.
I hope that somehow, if it is at all possible, Sarah's mom appreciates that her ashes ended up in a wonderful place.
