Arija Pilskalns Schwerdtfeger passed on to her next big adventure earlier this month, but in her last days requested that a farewell be posted here, on her behalf.

As per her instructions she was privately cremated.
We will be holding a family ceremony in the spring, to commemorate her life and scatter her remains among her beloved roses.

  7. I think this little blog was one of a number of saving graces Arija enjoyed in her later years. It was a pleasure to get to "know" her just a little thru her posts ... her joy of flowers & birds & well, all things beautiful from mama earth, was palpable. I will miss her here - we had some lively conversations and a kind of sweet commaraderie with picture-taking. May she rest in beautiful peace.
