Beth, my wife, recently passed away.
It has been the most devastating and difficult time of my entire life.
She had made it clear she wanted to be cremated. We scattered most of her ashes in the only place she mentioned – North Bend, Nebraska. Since then, I have begun burying her ashes in places she wished to travel, or places she loved and we traveled together. “Beth BBs” (the little spheres) are the main mechanism for this.
The initial 3D busts also contain her ashes, as do the spheres, and I am taking pictures of those when I travel. Several friends buried spheres for me in places like Hawaii and New Zealand. I’ve buried ashes in the United States, of course, but also Canada, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Luxembourg, Peru, Uruguay, Argentina, Great Britain, Scotland, Wales (her favorite place from our honeymoon), Italy, and will likely take some to Uganda (I bought the diamond for her wedding ring in Africa, and my replacement band was purchased in Uganda).
Some friends asked if I could document all of this. One specifically asked me to create a blog. My parents, and a few others, dislike Facebook, which I completely understand, so I created this blog for them.
If you don’t know me, or Beth, then I’m not sure how you found this site, but I will ofter the same metta for you that Beth said for her friends and family:
May you be happy.
May you be safe.
May you be healthy.
May you be peaceful.
May you know my gratitude and love.
