This past weekend, I was in my hometown of Annapolis, MD. It had been a few years since I'd been there, as much as I love that charming town. After losing my parents in 2010 and 2011, I decided it was too difficult to visit a place I loved so much without the people I loved being there.
But this visit was different. I was with a close friend, providing a "highlights" tour of my life. One of the first stops was at the U. S. Naval Academy where my parents cremains reside in the Columbarium.
