Entry: he stopped loving her today
Monday, June 02, 2014

Ever since we were little, Daddy told us that whenever he died, he wanted us to play a certain song at his funeral. He had a hard time letting go of our Mother once they divorced and this song expressed exactly how he felt.  At his memorial, in the whirlwind of decisions and plan making, I completely forgot about his request and we played a few other sentimental songs.  Over the past few months, I had been struggling with the decision he reluctantly made when he had to decide his wishes once he passed.  He said it would be alright to cremate him because he had this romantic idea of being scattered into the river to be ultimately washed away to the sea.  My sister's and I talked about carrying out his request but each couldn't part with the piece of him we had in our urns. Fearing that his remains would be cast out should something happen to each of us, we discussed and came to an agreement to bury him. We wanted him to have his own mark in this world.  He will meet his final resting place this Wednesday, June 4, in Evergreen Memorial Park courtesy of Seale Funeral Home. This is where my niece, Raylynn Alaine is buried, as well as her Father, Joseph Ray Hagan.  I told my sisters that it would be nice if we could all get together to take time to truly honor him by playing the songs we knew he loved.  It will be a nice private memorial for our Daddy and I know he will be looking down upon us and smiling.
