-The Mountain-

When I die, don't bury me in
a deep crevice, or under the Sea,
but high in the hills, not under the ground.
Take my ashes and spread them around,
so that I might grow with that mountain so tall.
And to no man, but God will I be small.

-Dan Thompson (1995)-

A memorial service will be held January 26th, from 11-2 pm at CrossRoads Church, 17671 Glacier Way, Lakeville, MN 55044.
