Scene's from a Funeral
We flew to Spokane last weekend to attend my Uncle Ron's funeral. As far as funeral's go it was pretty amazing. Memories were shared, tears were shed, lingering hugs were frequent. It felt so good to be reunited with my long distance family. I wasn't totally sure about bringing my camera but I'm so glad I did. It's me, it's what I do. In times like these you want to give something to help ease the pain of loss, but really there isn't anything you can give except your hand to hold. I guess I hoped I could help with the gift photographs.
So I snapped away.
My cousin asked me ahead of time to "get in position" when they presented the flag to my aunt. It was a moment he wanted captured and I did my best. It was by far the most emotional moment of the service. I've never actually been to a funeral where the trumpet plays Taps. It was so powerful and beautiful.
I love you my Family. I love you Uncle Ron. Say hi to Jesus for me.
