Edwards Funeral

On Tuesday, we went to the funeral for Jason's grandparents, Jack and Carole. I didn't take many pictures because no one really wants to keep pictures of the coffins and such. But the service was very nice. Jason's mom, aunt and uncle all spoke and they all did a wonderful job. We laughed, we cried and we celebrated their life together. I even learned some things about them that I never knew, like Jason's grandma played the clarinet. I did also when I was in elementary school. She was also a checkers champion. Jason's grandpa liked to wrestle and box. I know where all those Pearson boys get it from now!

Anyways, then we all went to the graveside, where there was one more speaker, and Sara released doves to symbolize them flying free and home together. It was very nice.

After that we went back to the church to eat and just be with everyone. Ryan made a very nice video montage out of their old photos and many people gave their thoughts, including Jason. All in all, very well done. We will miss them, but we know we will see them again one day.

Of course we had to have a couple of family pictures because we were all dressed up nice.
Ethan was smashing cups

My mom came with us, so that she could help with Ethan and so we could enjoy the service. She even helped watch Lily and Brooke too. Thanks Mom!

Me, though I think I tilted my head a little too far.

Aww, you look so pretty in those pictures! Sorry to hear of your loss, they were amazing people. But that are together now! I hope that's the way I go... a few days apart from my honey. =)
