We call this place "Freesoul" though it has no official name.   The name came to us while we were standing on the rock there where we stood countless times wondering what it would be like to fly like the birds we would see. When we took Erics' ashes here to his lifetime favorite place - his best friend, Jon Henschel brought music to play there that he said Eric had once said it should be played at his funeral... - the song  was SILENT LUCIDITY  performed by Queensryche  ~  A line in the song is "A soul set free to fly" and that was why it came to be known by us as "Freesoul" because we were releasing his 'dust' to fly through the air into everywhere.

This has become our Family Graveyard where 
we take our Family cremation remains to return them to the earth  
Genesis 3:19  ~  King James Version (KJV)
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; 
for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

* ashes to ashes, from an English burial service - not in bible - it is from:
I have run into the mistaken quotation so often that I researched the why of it and here it is:

The 1662 version of the Book of Common Prayer indicated the manner and text of the burial service:  
Then, while the earth shall be cast upon the Body by some standing by, the Priest shall say,  
(I've heard these words at nearly every funeral I've ever seen)

Forasmuch as it hath pleased Almighty God of his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our dear brother here departed, we therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be like unto his glorious body, according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself.


Hush now don't you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

You're lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game
Of life

So here it is, another chance
Wide awake, you face the day
Your dream is over...

Or has it just begun?

There's a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run through in the night

Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize
And you were scared

It's a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind

Commanding in another world
Suddenly, you'll hear and see
This magic new dimension

Will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through
Will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you

In silent lucidity...

Visualize your dream (Yes)
Record it in the present tense (Don't be scared)
Put it into a permanent form
If you persist in your efforts
You can achieve a dream come true
(How're you doing today?) 

Dream come true
Dream come true
Dream come true

Help me...

If you open your mind for me
You won't rely on open eyes to see

The walls you built within
Come tumbling down
And a new world will begin

Living twice at once you learn
You're safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly

A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize?
Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

Will be watching over you
I am gonna help you see it through
Will protect you in the night
I am smiling next to you...
