                 I didn't see how we were going to make it up the mountain. Exhaustion had set in already and my shirt was soaked with sweat. The Northern Arizona sun could of baked an egg on the red rock surrounding us. I took a deep breath in, looked at her - she looked at me as if the pain in her feet was nothing compared to the pain she was feeling inside. That's what I saw in her eyes. I tightened my lips, gaver a whole hearted smile, another sigh, and grabbed the vase from her. We finally made it to the top. The sky wisping blue with streaks of clouds. She handled the vase with pose walking over to the edge, I helped her when it came time to pour. Right by her side, I watched her first tear hit the dust below our feet and looked on as the ashes of her father rose into the mid afternoon Arizona sky.
