On a number of occasions
as Barbara's health slowly declined over the last seven years she
asked me to promise to spread some of her ashes in the Lockwood
family plot in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Tarrytown, N.Y. After her
death I was determined to keep my promise.
On Thursday, September 5, 2013 our son Alexander and I flew to the Westchester airport in White Plains. Barbara's second son, Rex, and his wife Elisabeth met us when we landed after ten at night and took us to our hotel. At eleven the next morning they took us to the cemetery where we were joined by their sons, Alexander and Morgan, with their wives Lorayne and Dana.
Ten years earlier, on May 1, 2003, our late friend Charles Ahlers drove us from his Manhattan home to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery to visit the Lockwood plot. In the pictures below I recapitulate the one of Barbara from that day.
