My husband Randy had the honor of officiating a friend’s memoral this past weekend.
About three years ago we met this family who are residents where Randy works. Their kids hung out with our kids.
Unfortunately after battling cancer for a couple of years, her body finally succumbed to the treacherous disease.
My heart aches for her widower, son, daughter-in-law, two daughters and two granddaughters.
One of her daughters chose a beautiful ocean venue for the service. They rented a house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was stunning!
Their closest family and friends came together to laugh, cry, comfort one another and share stories.
We were blessed by the love she shared with our family during her time with us and we enjoyed listening to stories of how she impacted the lives of others.
I learned more about her love, encouragement, inspiration and open door policy. Man, what a role model!
Attending something like this reminds me to live life to the fullest and embrace the people God has placed in your life.
