Today we lay to rest a dear loved one from my husband's family. His father Ben was 84 years young and his death was sudden. We were on the way back from New York as it all began to unfold.  God has a plan and ours is not to question. We celebrate the life of Ben today with family and friends at a memorial service and tomorrow we continue to honor him at a graveside service at the Veterans Cemetery in Dallas, with military honors. Ben served our country in WWII in the Navy and during the Korean Conflict, he served in the US Airforce.  Not many veterans serve in more than one service. 

Thank you again for your kind emails and words of encouragement for both Terry and the family.

Thanks Laurie for sharing this with us. I am not sure how people make it through something like this without a faith such as yours. A funeral can be a beautiful celebration of a life as you are demonstrating. It is still not easy i know. May God bless you and your family and comfort you each step of the way.

So sorry to hear of your loss. How this development must have weighed on your minds as you made your way back to Texas. My own father Ben will be 85 next month. In sympathy, Sarah Bowie
