A Most Blessed Day

Today was amazing! I cannot even find the words to express the feelings that were felt today at Kingston's funeral. It was beyond beautiful. Everything was perfect. Ryan's mom read a letter I had written to Kingston, then Ryan spoke. After that, we had our good friend, Scott, sing a song (which was absolutely amazing). My dad then spoke. He read a letter he claimed from was heaven from Kinston to me and Ryan. It was very cute and just what I needed to hear. He then dedicated the grave. The peace that was there was so amazing. I only hope the people there felt the spirit just as much as I did or at least a little inkling of what I felt. I came home full of joy and happiness. That is how a funeral should be. Thank you to all who participated in the service. Thank you Jesse and Garret for carrying our precious baby. We could not have picked better hands for him to be in. Thank you to all who came! You all have been amazing supporters throughout our jouney and we are so grateful for all of you! Thank you for making our day even more beautiful.

The services were beautiful and very spiritual. I'm very glad I was able to attend. The talks that were given were very moving! Jeb said to let you know he sends his love and sorry he missed the services. You are in our prayers and we can't wait to meet Scarlet!

Thank you for letting us share in such a special service. We definately felt the spirit and know that Kingston is in good hands on the other side. I still kind of wish those crazy hands of Linda's were here to hold my babies :) Thank goodness for our knowledge of eternal families!

Agreed, you look amazing and I love the blocks with his name spelled out. What a beautiful little spirit Heavenly Father has sent to you that you will always be able to hold in your heart until the great reunion in heaven. My prayers are with you and consider this a hug and loves sent from a stranger:)

Ryan and Ashley,
This sounds like the perfect day for a perfect little person. I feel bad that I was unable to attend do to work circumstances. Abbie said everything was beautiful and perfect. Wish you the best and Scarlet looks cute! Love, Seth
