Thank you Guestbook...

I have been avoiding this post.  Just brings back too much sadness and pain.

Remember this post, about our brother in law's sudden death? This has been a truly tragic experience for us and especially for his our sister and their 10 children. 


Ann from Guestbook quickly provided us with this wonderful customized Guestbook for the funeral.


The best thing about this book is the pages for people to fill out. There are prompting questions guests can answer and it's so great to read later. To learn things about your loved one you wouldn't know otherwise.  Also a way for the kids to know their dad, their youngest child is only 4.


This page from his 6 year old daughter just made me tear up. It says "How did you know Greg?" She answers "He was my Dad." Then it took us a bit to read what her favorite memory was, "feeding ducks with him." Heartbreaking. 


This was a sweet one from my 9 year old daughter.  She said her favorite memory was when she spent the night one weekend. Greg asked her what her favorite food was. She answered steak. Greg went out and bought steaks to make for everyone because it was her favorite meal. I had never heard that sweet story about him.  


I also loved that almost all the children colored pictures.  


This is truly a treasure. Thank you Ann and Guestbook for providing this family such a gift. 

Also, if you are able, these accounts are still open for donations for the family.
