    No words are necessary; this photo says it all. Lovely sunflowers too….

    His memory is preserved there as a beautiful celebration of a life well loved. It’s perfect that the sunflowers brighten up both sides.

      Oh, you noticed the two sunflowers! Sweet.
      The other side is Ma’s ‘side’. She passed away first and Dad wanted the phrase ‘Together Forever’ to be written on it, so we left it as is in tribute to his love for her (hence the ‘love you both’ on the bottom of Dad’s side from we the living).

      • Andy

        Ah I see. I thought it meant you loved both aspects of your father-the family man and the mountain man.

        • laura bruno lilly

          That was something bro & I thought might happen, but decided to word it that way anyway…
          Either way, it works!
