I attended a funeral on Sunday, not my 1st by any means, but the 1st time I was at "bikers funeral". My 2 half sisters lost their mother last week (I've known her my whole life, great woman). My sisters and their mother all had moved years ago, but their roots are in New England. Their mother was married to a great guy who also happened to be president of a well known club in the area I grew up in. He passed in 97 and she just last week. Her wishes were to have her ashes spread on the shore.

She was former military, Honor Guard was there, presented flag to my oldest sister. Tons of bikes lined the road covering the coast line, her best friend riding on the back of an old friends Harley made a long pass by the crowd and went down the road 1/8 mile and turned around, they ripped back up the road and let her ashes fly. She got to get out on one last bike ride in front of friends and family and her ashes flew off in the breeze. It was the ONLY time I have ever attended a funeral that truly celebrated someones life and who they were, instead of mourning what was lost. I'll never forget that day

RIP

I have never heard of this, but it seems very well thought out, and very appropriate.. A nice way to remember a special person and get some closure. Condolences

thank you guys.

Glust, it was by far the best way I have seen to celebrate someones life once they are gone. It was beyond unique and thought it would be cool to share. Was curious if anyone else had attended a funeral that was similar at all. I knew this was going to be like no other I went to, but it was beyond my expectations. Really made me think about things.
