Mike and his siblings.

This was taken last night after the funeral for his sister.  Some are still dressed from the funeral and some have changed clothes after a long day.  A good family friend is a photographer and took this for them.  

Mike and his brother conducted the service and did a great job.  One sister told some family stories that really added, as did the stories told by a friend of the family.  Another sister read scripture.  Steve gave the message and Mike gave concluding remarks.  I was so proud of him and what he said.  The chapel was packed, standing room only; the lobby was full of people; the parking lot could take no more cars, and people were parked along the road.  And we've heard of people who tried to come and just left because there was no parking and no seating left.  With so many family members, and many various people coming to support all of them, the place was filled to overflowing.

It seems like it's been months since last Friday morning.
