Service Information

A small family service was held at West Spray Lakes, Canmore AB on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 11:30 am, at the last campsite ½ ways down the far side of the 2nd lake just before the gate closing the road off. We created an altar of sorts on the beach out of pine, juniper and fir branches with a few wild flowers. (See pics in photo section). We played his favorite songs, How Great Thou Art, Angel Band, and God on The Mountain. As the music played we floated the urn and scattered pink rose petals on the water, each remembering him quietly in our own way. The urn was made for water burials. It was beautifully done with embossed roses and the inscription “We knew not loves true depth, until his soul was set free”. We did a toast with picnic champagne glasses and O’Doul’s Amber alcohol free beer, his drink of choice! Next we built a stone heart memorial at water’s edge where the urn went in. If you look close there is an ‘R’ inside of it. Then we gathered above the lake in the trees for a picnic lunch while playing 50’s and 60’s country tunes that used to play in his old auto shop all the time. It was clear, sunny, and breezy. It was perfect as could be and a wonderful way to recall Ron-Dad-Grandpa’s final resting place.
