Bond’s family says he will be buried at sea, and invite the public to share in the ceremony.
We are honoring his wishes that his body be cremated and his ashes be committed to the Gulf of Mexico. This will be a private, family only service. The final request will be carried out at sea on Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. CDT…We invite you to gather at a body of water near your home and precisely at 2:00 p.m., CDT, spread flower petals on the water and join us in bidding farewell to Julian Bond. This gesture will mean a great deal to us as a family and also provide some comfort in knowing that you share our loss.
