We just got back to Texas after a roller coaster ride to Colorado and back. We drove up to Colorado Springs on Wednesday (it takes us about 14 hours). Thursday was the memorial service for Heather. Saturday was my birthday (30 years young). Then on Sunday we drove back to Dallas. It was really draining partly because of all the driving and no doubt also because of the grief. It was difficult to be back in Colorado and not have Heather there. But in the midst of it God was kind. It was encouraging to be around my family and see them trusting in the Lord. There were around 200 people at the memorial service; it is amazing to see how God used Heather.
Below is the video slideshow from Heather’s memorial. Take some time to watch it and thank God for her life.
