A nice send off

Post by Cambin » Fri Oct 04, 2019 4:57 pm

On Thursday 3rd we laid my father to rest after his tragic death
But we gave him the best send off with taking him to his final rest spot on my 25 T 😊

The "final ride" is always sad, regardless of the circumstances, or the conveyance. But it does help to make it somehow special. And the model T certainly does that.
My condolences to you and your family.

Nothing better than that, I did the same years ago for a friend in his 11 roadster.

Perfect last ride.
Beautiful casket to lay in and looks like a lovely day.
He'll rest now yet I think you already take-in the beauty of the day/situ. We must. :)
