"When Hal passed on last week, his family asked for the red cedar pine casket. William and his wife made a fifteen hour trip, and we all went to the funeral. Athelia, Hal's widow, was so appreciative of the casket. It really reflected Hals life among the cedars and pines where he ran his cattle, grew alfalfa hay, and hunted during the season with his family. At the burial, it seemed so right that his casket was made of dark red cedar which practically glowed in the winter sunshine. It was a comfort to me that Hal's last resting place was warm wood and not cold metal. His kids shared that they felt the same."
I am grateful for Hal and Athelia's friendship, especially towards my husband in his teenage/young adult years.
