Jerry Burchard's Buddhist Memorial in Thailand

I had the good fortune of being in Bangkok at the same time that Bob Basile and Michael (Namo) Kahn planned Jerry Buchard's memorial. Since I was unable to attend the memorial in San Francisco I felt very lucky indeed to be in Thailand for this. Here are some photographs I took during the service and during the scattering of the ashes. — at Wat Suthatthepwararam.

Namo is wearing a Hawaiian shirt that Jerry gave him.

Namo scatters the ashes. ...and finally Jerry is home in the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, Thailand.
