Celebration Of Life

We held a Celebration of Life Service for my mom at Gore Mountain this past weekend. My mom's family used to go to Gore Mountain all the time to go skiing. My mom loved to ski, that was her biggest passion in life. So all of us, including my mom's family and friends, met at the bottom of the mountain and then we took the gondola to the top of the mountain. 

We then walked down the mountain a little bit and all of us gathered in a circle and held hands. And my uncle started by saying a few words and then encouraged people to share stories. So people around the circle shared stories about my mom and most of them were skiing related. You could tell by everyone's stories how big of a part skiing played in her life. After that we spread her ashes on the mountain. So she will forever have a resting place on top of her favorite mountain. And off in the distance you can see some of the other trails that my uncle said were some of her favorite trails to ski. We took a bunch of pictures so that we can remember exactly the place that my mom will be forever.

This picture shows all the family that was able to make it out to the mountain. There were quite a few other people that were there but this one is of all the family.
