I am sorry I have not posted. My nephews memorial was yesterday. There were 100s of people there. Each one had stories about how either his mom or he had touched their lives.
My sister has been a single mom since he was 3. He died at age 24.
One of the men who was there was his first soccer coach from when he was around 4 yrs old! His band instructor from High School. My sisters co-workers from many years ago. Old bosses.
Nephew's room mates from college, and of course extended family.
He had touched the lives of so many. On March 27, 2002 he accepted Christ. From that point on his faith never waivered, even in the midst of illness. He never pushed his faith on you but loved to talk about it.
His youth paster did the service and almost didn't make it to the end. He had the privilage of becoming his friend after he became an adult.
Today's weather I believe will be a gift from God. It won't be over 86 degrees. Now this is Texas in the summer. This never happens...ever.
She has a very rough road ahead of her. But she knows that her son lived life every day to the very fullest and she wants to do the same because of her. She just doesn't know how at this point.
