Luke wanted to go be there when they put them in and so I decided to bring Lauren and go as well. I didn’t really want to but I also felt compelled to go.
We followed the cemetery manager (Luke tells me that is his title) to the columbarium and they had a little pedestal and a fake green/grass carpet thingy on the cement in front of Nathan’s niche. That kind of made me cringe but I guess I should have expected that with it being a cemetery and all. I have to remind myself that most people like that kind of stuff – it was just that we were kind of trying to avoid it ourselves.
The drawer was open and the door was propped up on an easel. We looked at it for a moment and then the manager handed Luke the container and he put it in the drawer. We asked him to have it closed so we could take pictures of it and so he called someone over who closed it up and he went on his way.
After that, we went back home. We will talk to Julia, explain all the stuff (cremation etc) and take her over there sometime soon.
