Mom saying goodbye to dad. Puget Sound, Seattle, WA.

After my father died, my mother came to live with me in Seattle for several months. Dad specified in his will that he wanted his mother's ashes thrown into the Pacific Ocean. That Saturday, cloudy and windy, my mother and I drove thirty minutes to Alki Beach with a bronze vase containing grandmother's ashes. I took this picture as mom carried out dad's will. I think she was actually saying goodbye to dad.
