Remembering Thomas

I am very thankful that I was able to make it to Thomas' memorial service this past Monday. It was a BEAUTIFUL service. Sarah's friend David Gentiles spoke...didn't try to answer any questions, but reminded us that God is good. Scott's sister Rachel spoke on behalf of the family and shared how Thomas had brought them all closer together. There was a beautiufl song and then a slideshow of Thomas pics. After a closing prayer there was a reception at the church and it was a good time to cry and laugh together.
I was able to have breakfast with Sarah the next day before I left Dallas and she reassured me that she's doing ok. She and Scott are obviously devastated, but it must be a huge relief that Thomas is no longer suffering. They're leaving this weekend for a two week somewhere beautiful.

Mexican Beauty,
thanks so much for sharing this. I have been thinking about and praying for them. I am so glad they are going to go away some where. I do hope it is beautiful and restful.
Thanks, sweet friends, for your kind thoughts.

And Mx Beauty, Scott and I each took a picture of Thomas with us on our trip - and each of us chose one of the ones you took during the visit that this photo came from.

thought that would make you happy to know.
that makes me very happy. love u, sarah.
