Honoring my wife's final dying wish

Share Comment


My wife's dying wish was for me to carry her body home to San Diego and scatter her ashes out to sea. We flew Southwest Airlines from Orlando, Florida to San Diego, California. With a side trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. We met in Las Vegas, 20 years ago. Two weeks after we first met, I proposed marriage and she accepted. We both knew it was love at first sight.

Southwest Airlines helped take us back; back to the same coffee shop we had our first date. The video was made, in the hotel in Las Vegas that still has that same coffee shop where we had our first date. The coffee shop where our lives together began.. 


We flew on Flight 452, Feb 12, 2018; MCO to LAS. Then Flight 1365, Feb 14, 2018; LAS to SAN. Southwest Airlines helped me honor my wife's final dying wish.
