It’s amazing where beauty comes out… A beautiful morning, sun high in the sky; a calm ocean that seemed to pick up as the day went on… From very far and very near they came: his parents, family and friends, to gather on the beach – the same beach where he learned to surf as a little boy… To have a few hours to honor, mourn, celebrate a man, a soul, a being who was so alive and so strong and who died so young… I feel lucky to have been there, a sympathetic witness to his open, loving heart.
