This is by far the toughest post I have had to write. I am robbed of words as I am still in shock that instead of holding and cuddling what would be my almost 8-month-old baby boy…..I sit here posting his funeral. (It really sucks….like a lot.)
I will say as far as funerals go it kicked ass. Family and friends traveled from afar, we had our close friends lead the service (Thanks again Godwin and Jonathan we love you both and are so thankful for you both) and First Alliance Church (the host church) went above and beyond for our family to make everything happen. Ronnie and I got an awesome surprise from all of our friends (watch till the end it is worth it) and we danced our way out of the service.
We were surrounded by amazing support that day. My prayer is that you get something out of watching this, that you “run towards your roar” that follow your nudge and that you make the most of the moments that you have.
Lewiston, thank you for teaching so many so much. We love you and miss you.
