Remembering Noah

Erik & I were thankful to be able to be with my family this past week to remember Noah's short life. My brother-in-law graciously used his airmlies so that we could be there (along with Silas). Erik and I ended up being part of the music team for the funeral which was an honor. My other sister, Erin, put together 2 slide presentations for the funeral - the first was shown in the middle of the service and the second was played as the family was led out of the church.





Although Erik and I were only able to know Noah from far away, we prayed for him often and knew just how special he was - to his family and to so many others who met him or only knew him through his blog. Now, our hearts are heavy for Brad, Nichole, Josh & Kailyn as we have a bit of an idea of the road of grief that is still ahead for them...

It's interesting . . . we emailed the links to these videos to our "future" supporters. We've received many emails already this evening of people who have watched the videos and were touched by the videos. Noah is still touching people's lives!!!!!!

Wow, I like that lost song on that last video. He really is free to do those things!

So glad you were able to be there.
