I got Norman's ashes back a while ago now. They are still sitting in the rose decorated box they came in on his memory table. I've been trying to decide if I want to scatter them all, or just some, or not at all. Is it ok to scatter some ashes and keep the rest?
He really loved the beach. When swim season is over I'd love to bring him there and let some of him go.. but not sure I ever want to let all of him go..
And I definatly don't want him sitting in that rose box forever. That's just not him. Guess I better get looking for a nice urn.
Still miss that boy so much..

One of the dogs I grew up with is already 15... we know she will be passing away soon. My stepmother wants to do the same and keep her ashes in a jar. I think it's a beautiful idea to scatter them in the beach. Do whatever is going to make you feel at peace.
In return for scraps he is loyal, affactionate, our best friend and protector. It's the best deal man ever made.
I think everyone sitution is different and you should do what you are comfortable with. Max always laid right with me just like the other two. So, I have his ashes in the computar room and somehow that makes me feel close to him. I guess for him, he will just stay with me. lol!! I'm a selfish ole' mom. But, I think what you want to do with Norman's ashes is fine. You just don't know how I appreciated and still do your friendship during that hard time. It helps so much.
I agree, do what feels right. Me, I would sprinkle some in all the places I could reach that he was happiest at and espceially if you have a tree, bush flowers in the ground on your property, a sprinkle there will continue "his essence" forever. IMO My heart goes out to you Riley.
