Dad's Burial Place in Prescott

Dad's Burial Place in Prescott On April 8th as he was driving from Phoenix to Tuba City for the last part of his Amizade Adventure, Lee detoured to Prescott to take photos for me of the mausoleum where Dad's ashes are interred. I've been there, but he wanted to take some photos for me. I couldn't remember the exact location, although I knew what the place looked like, so I found it on Google Earth and directed Lee there by phone. It was a fun way to find it.

Lee talked with the pastors (both women), and Pastor Carol said they'd look into tidying the place up and making it look more cared-for. She said there had been a wind-storm recently, but the fountain looked abandoned, etc.

I think this is a very nice last resting place! And how very nice of Lee to take these beautiful photographs...I'm sure they bring back lots of good memories.
