A special thank you to Rachel White and her hospice staff from Aspirus for giving Jason compassion and dignity and the staff at Mt. View.
Jason’s totem is a dragonfly. The dragonflies connect to the spirit of nature and they are symbolism of light. The night of his departure a dragonfly came into his room to circle his bed and the next day a dragonfly showed up at his mom’s door. According to Native American traditions it is a symbol of departed souls.
A celebration of Life will be held at Baker’s Retreat 1418 Lenard St. Wausau, WI on Saturday July 11th from 2 pm to 8 pm. Mid-Wisconsin Cremation Society is assisting family at this time. On line condolences can be made at www.HonorOne.com
