just returned from lanzarote ?

Asked by: 20th June 2012

had a long weekend there to scatter my husbands ashes. we have visited lanzarote over 80 times in the last 30 years. my husband loved a day on the beach watching the planes land so that is where i scattered his ashes. my sister came with me, her first time on the island and we now have a convert, she wants to visit again with her family. i don’t think i will return to lanzarote but have many wonderful memories of this lovely island.

    Don’t know if this is sad or comforting, probably a bit of both. I can think of no better place for my ashes to be scattered (although I’m hoping it wont be for a long time yet) Much better to be scattered in a beautiful setting that you loved than stuck in an urn somewhere. But you shouldn’t cut your self off from a place that you and your husband obviously loved, I’m sure he’d want to you to return to keep him company at that spot.

    thats a lovely thing to do carole , very dificult for you I imagine ? but at least you have your wonderful memories, and your husband gets to rest in peace in his favourite place x hopefully you will feel able to return yourself at some point.

    i cant imagine how difficult it has been for u, totally understandable that ur unsure of whether to come back as the memories of u both there will hurt but at the same time make u happy. i hope u can bring urself to go back to the island and be with ur husband again at some point as this is his resting spot now.
