Saying Goodbye

Sunday afternoon we celebrated John Desiderio's life. Some of his close friends and many paddling partners met at the Lake for a potluck lunch of of John's favorites, deep fried turkey, deep fried hot-dogs, and kielbasi and sauerkraut, just to name a few.

After lunch we got in our kayaks and paddled out, wishing John well, knowing he's paddling the clouds above us. We left John's ashes scattered in the waters he visited often, saluting him with our paddles. He will be missed by many.

When I returned home, I looked back through some old photo's and found this series of shots taken of John being his playful self. I loved his beautiful smile and laugh.
