Long Ride Home

I spent my “day off” yesterday speaking at a veterans workshop in Columbia, SC and visiting the construction site of our new cremation facility, also to be located in Columbia. I am going “full-circle” back to the days (and place) of coordinating construction of new facilities.

Anytime I can get in front of a room of veterans, thank them and show them how to save money…I am there. Couple that with the aroma of freshly turned dirt at a work site and I will be a happy man.

(At least I got to sleep in until 6am)

The "pad" for our new crematory in Columbia

The “pad” for our new crematory in Columbia

While driving home from Columbia on I-20, I heard this song on the shuffle and decided it would be the subject of today’s post….thanks, Doug.

A song about a funeral and going home for the first time….alone.

From the soundtrack of Elizabethtown.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. This song gave me a lump in my throat, both for the words and for the visuals, as the scenery could easily be from where I was raised. The song “Believe” by Brooks and Dunn has a similar effect on me–I choke up every time I hear it….
