This past Sunday was incredible. If you have followed this blog for the past 4 years (HOW HAS IT BEEN THAT LONG) you might know about the Cherryville Cemetery saga. If are bored you can read up about it here.  Or if you want the quick gist of the story, read this blog post. 

Sunday was a dedication ceremony for the cemetery. The monument above was placed by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (Beaverton Chapter). The cemetery is now an historical landmark. Two  years ago it was being swallowed up by the Oregon forest. Now it is protected by the State of Oregon.

The ceremony was wonderful. The highlight for me was that someone from the military (not sure which branch) played Taps from afar. I can’t even describe how surreal and beautiful this moment was. I imagined my uncle Will smiling down on the scene.

I walked away from the ceremony thanking the Universe. I am amazed at how things just come together.
