Saturday we had a great flight for an ash scattering over The Laguna Mountains in Anza Borrego Desert State Park. The family of the deceased wanted her scattered over one of her favorite places. I can see why she loved it.
Because of these monsoonal build-ups that occur in the afternoon over the desert, we got started early. The flight there and back was smooth and clear. I am so lucky to do what I do.
The family was not able witness from the ground, but rather chose to meet us at a local airport and personally hand over the cremated remains. When we arrived at the local airport there were about 15 family members waiting for us. They drove from all different directions to be there for the event. Some drove hundreds of miles. I am so honored that they chose me to do this for their family.
After several pictures with the plane we set off towards the Laguna Mountains in San Diego for the ash scattering. Monsoon season is just starting, so the sky was marbled with tall white clouds. The clouds cast shadows on the hills and the uneven lighting makes the landscape come alive. It was beautiful!
Flights like this make me so thankful to do what I do. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me.
