Scattering my Dad’s ashes

by | Aug 12, 2023 | Travel

On my birthday this year, my sister, brother and I honored my Dad’s wishes to have his ashes scattered by plane. My brother had a friend from his sky-diving days who owned a small airport in Ottawa, IL and graciously agreed to assist us in scattering Dad’s remains over the airfield. The man doing the release videoed his prospective from the plane so I was able to stitch together this video combining our view from the ground and his from the air. It was emotional and perfect.

Afterwards we split a martini (shaken, not stirred – my Dad’s favorite) and opened a bottle of champagne as we watched 80 sky-divers who were trying to set a record swoop down all around us.
