A Beautiful Day For A Beautiful Girl

Today was Katelyn’s funeral. It was beautiful. Sometimes it feels akward for me to say a funeral was good, but this one was. There was a lot of tears, many beautiful songs sung and touching speeches made. At the end of the service we released balloons, like 500 of them, it was really cool. Most of them had notes to Katelyn on them. It was amazing to see just how many lives she touched. The message was amazing as well. I really hope the people there heard it and took it to heart. Something like this really makes me think, makes me want to be a better person, inspires me to love other people as God does.

At 10pm, a bunch of people from the churches and from Riverton gathered at Roger and Anita’s house and lit candles and we sang praise and worship songs. It was such a beautiful time. It makes me so glad to be in a church family that cares so much about the members. I know it meant a lot to the family for everyone to be there.

Please continue to pray for the family as they adjust to life without Katelyn. Also please pray for my cousin and my family and also all the other people in Riverton that knew her. Pray that they will come to Jesus because of what they saw in her and what they see in us.
