You told us about your arrangements a while back - did you take the train to Ottawa? Will there be music at the pub lunch (impromptu or planned?)

I pulled up Google maps and found the military cemetery in Ottawa and was able to do a street view tour. What a beautiful place. I see copper beeches there - such lovely trees - along with a nice mix of deciduous and evergreen, meaning in winter it will have the green to sustain moods (so important in cold seasons, the reason I planted pines and junipers here). There are lots of another of my favorites, spruce. I see people walking in there—is it considered appropriate to ride bikes through this park setting? Would Edmund and his bike might have enjoyed this area? I don't want to make any assumptions, not having been around that many cemeteries beyond the ones were family members are buried (small church yards not large enough for much more than walking among the headstones). Here's wishing you the best as you navigate this ceremonial goodbye. ❤ ❤ ❤
