One "wedding" and a funeral

It has been an exhausting and emotionally draining couple of days, but they were very beautiful. The funeral was eloquent, the flowers beautiful, and the viewing last night was made a little bit easier by one of Ellie's comments (Shocker, I know). As the family gathered together, there was a little presentation for the kids about how the spirit and body have separated, but will be reunited at the resurrection. Then the question was asked, "Who knows what Jeff is wearing?" A few kids raised their hands, but Ellie threw her hands in the air and shouted, "I know! I know! He's wearing his wedding dress!" With our emotions drawn so thin, this little outburst sent everyone in the room laughing to tears, and I'm sure it took great effort to steer the conversation back in the right direction.
