A 3 day respite to the mountains …
This lovely church is located in the western hills of North Carolina. It is also where my middle son was contracted to work on two columbarium’s a few weeks back. (a columbarium is defined as “a vault of niches where cremated ashes are interred”.)
The contractor has a mason construct the basic structure according to plan and then my son puts on the finishing touches … usually in marble or fine granite. He has been doing this for quite a few years and his job has taken him even as far from home as Texas.
When this job materialized he surprised me by asking if I’d like to go along and of course I jumped at the chance. Here he is … before and after.
It turned into a lovely 3 day vacation for me … spending quality time with my son … watching him work, reading, relaxing and just generally “chilling out” together.
It’s such a comfort to have him living nearby but it’s also fun for the two of us to get away from the old home scene. This little trip is a memory that will be with me forever.
