Sorry that I've been absent for the last week. The funeral was on Saturday and it was good, though it was very difficult. Seeing his wife following the casket as tears poured down her cheeks was extremely hard. I also didn't know that they were going to read letters written to Chris and his wife. The first letter they read was mine. It made me weep even more. But it helped to hear my own words of comfort to him. Death isn't permanent. I'll see Chris in heaven someday and that gives me hope. Also, I feel like I've been mourning him since I found out two months ago that he was drying. It actually helped. I still have trouble singing worship songs at church or listening to other music that reminded me of him, but it will pass and I'll be okay. Thank you for your prayers.
