Spirits in the stream

  This letter is regarding Paul Zaenger’s essay about ashes (HCN, 9/5/05: The meeting of heaven and earth). My mother and grandmother were both strong advocates of women’s rights and the Democratic Party in Utah. It was fitting that we broadcast their ashes into the stream up Emigration Canyon in Salt Lake City, allowing their liberal spirits to flow down through town, maintaining vigilance as they had in life.
