A memorial garden

From 2012 to late 2021 we owned a house on Roaring Brook Lake in Putnam County, NY. My late wife was a very active member of the community’s garden club (she loved gardening). The garden club maintains a small garden by the entrance to the lake and a few years ago they decided to place memorial stones for lake residents who had recently passed away. One of those was my late wife, Eirah who now has a stone there inscribed with her name.

One of my daughters recently came to visit with her family and she wanted to take her two daughters to see the garden. So off we went. Above: Colorful sign by the garden at the entrance to the community.


Echinaceas taken from our house in Briarcliff Manor years ago and donated to the garden club. They seem to be doing well. Eirah is no longer with us but the flowers remain.
