It was a beautiful day to celebrate life and healing.

Tears and smiles were shared equally.
Those of us that love Andrew best were together to honor his son and his wife.

Sometime during my own grief I forgot about Bradyn's mother and Andrew's wife. She is so young yet strong in a way that I can't even being to understand. It is an honor to know her.
(Great Grandpa B, Grandma B, Baby B and Kyra)
Kyra finds a way to smile through pain and find joy in the little things
Would we really recognize all the beauty, love, joy and fun if we didn't have the dark, sad, hard and scary days?
(My oldest sister is a Grandma now. Grandma and Grandpa Leppink. It is sort of crazy)
Nothing heals a broken heart like a baby. Straight from heaven, pure and simple.
Believe me, things can always get better.
