'graduated into the presence of Jesus' - nice thought, such a difficult loss.

I also loved that phrase. It was so befitting. It was a very difficult service, but also really beautiful and full of her, if that makes any sense. They played a slide show of her life and travels, and the pictures of her and Todd, who was killed in car accident two years ago, reduced me to tears. At the end, when the pastor gave a final prayer, her four teenage children, seated together on one bench, linked arms, and squeezed each other so tight, it makes me cry every time I think about it. A really exceptional family. I can't say enough about them. Still, I am really sad looking at our recent emails, unable to write back. :(
