Diary of a Brown Eyed Girl: MY DAD'S FUNERAL


Thursday, July 31, 2014

Just this past Saturday we celebrated my Dad's life. It was very emotional, beautiful and the Spirit was so incredibly powerful. I know my Dad would have been so proud and I know he was smiling down on all of us from up above. I have felt so much peace and comfort this past week knowing that my Dad has returned back home to our wonderful God who gave him life. I know he is now without pain and he is not suffering anymore. As much as I would love for him to still be here, I know deep in my heart that he is better off where he is at right now. I am so grateful for the Gospel and the Atonement of Jesus Christ who suffered it so that we could live once again and be able to experience never-ending happiness. I am grateful for the knowledge that I have and the knowledge that I know to be true with every fiber of my being. The veil is thin, heaven is real and families are forever! How great is the plan of our God! I miss you so much Daddy and I know I will get to see you again and get to spend eternity being right by your side. 

*I want to shout out a very special thank you to my best friend, Paola (she is in the 11th picture down) who snapped all of these great photos and went over above and beyond with decorating and making sure things ran smoothly. Thank you so much my gorgeous friend. So grateful for you!! I love you to pieces!

  1. Wow! What a beautiful sendoff! I have to tell you I looked through the photos before I read the post and I thought to myself- This girl has to be a Christian! I can just see the trust you have in the Lord in your smile. Just the fact that you were able to smile at all is a testament to God's goodness! So sorry for your loss! As you know your daddy is in good hands! Praying that God would continue to comfort you and our family!

    1. Thank you Lindsey. Hahaha! Yes...he is in very good hands and I cannot wait to see him again. It's interesting when you lose a parent, something inside of you feels more determined to love more and do better in all aspects of life. I love it!
