a celebration

sanctuary-wideangle

Thursday I had the honor of attending Uncle Evan and Aunt Peggy’s celebration service. It was truly awe inspiring to see the vast number of people sitting in this enormous sanctuary to remember two lives. My Aunt and Uncle were so loved.

After this service, the celebration continued at a nearby country club. It was a joyous occasion, as people talked and laughed, or stood together in small groups just remembering. It was wonderful.

tender moment

I simply adore this last one. The lovely lady on the right is my grandmother. And the woman touching her cheek is Aunt Peggy’s mother. One has lost a son and one a daughter. Yet both are smiling. A wonderful testament of faith and hope.
