Thank you

I want to thank everyone for the encouragement and prayers the past few days and weeks. The really do make a difference.

The past few days have been really strange. It feels like I'm in a dream. They've definitely not been easy, but I'm doing okay. Since we left the hospital on Saturday night after Rebecca went to be with Jesus, I've stayed busy. I don't want to sit at home and have time to really think right now. I know that I will have to think about it, but for now I'm staying busy. I've talked with friends about Heaven and life. They've been very encouraging talks. I went to get a dress for the funeral. I got a purple necklace to wear to the funeral since purple is her favorite color. I've made up errands to do so that I'm not sitting at home. So far that plan is working. I know in a couple days things will calm down and I'll have to think about it.

The visitation was tonight and the funeral is tomorrow morning. There have been lots of tears, but also lots of laughter at memories and pictures. I know tomorrow will be the same.

Please keep praying for us and encouraging us. I can't thank you enough. God is carrying us through this.
