Jesse Love Lewis Memorial

On Sunday, December 12, we gathered to celebrate Jesse’s life. It was a partly sunny and pleasant day with community, family, and friends gathered to pray, sing, and share stories of Jesse. Jeff and Catherine were the celebrants, with Clare and Donald leading us in song.

To conclude the memorial, we gathered in our memorial garden, where Donald led us in blessing Jesse’s ashes and the burial site, then placing dirt over the ashes in the final burial.

We then continued the celebration with homemade tamales, cake, pie, ice cream, and root beer floats. Jesse would have loved it. We miss you, Jesse! (NOTE: The “LOVE” circle on the altar is Jesse’s grave marker, also, click on photos to view at higher resolution.)
