Dan and I are still in St. Paul, Minnesota after arriving last week. My brother from VA, my sister and her family from Minnesota gathered at Calvary Cemetery to bury my parents’ cremains in the Wall family plot. My fathers’s two brothers are buried here. My grandfather left the last plot to me when I was widowed in the 70s. It seemed so right to bring my parents cremains back to Minnesota where they lived until their retirement.
Although my parents died last fall, just 7 weeks apart, we waited until we could gather as a family in the summer. We celebrated a wedding in June and the birth of a new grand niece in July. It has been a summer of life changes for our family.
Heather treated the family to lunch at the Muffaletta in St. Anthony Park where we lived in our teen years.
