Love Is Forever

Today was sweet Henry's mass and funeral. I can't even imagine how hard it was for Henry's family. I so wish I could have been there. They had a children's choir and three of Carla's children sang in the choir. 

The kids and I lit a candle to honor Henry and his family. Henry is happy in Heaven, but we pray his family is comforted. 

I will make sure my two sweet Ukrainians always know about Henry and how much his life touched so many. I am so blessed to know Carla, her love for her children and the joy she has for life is inspiring. 

My mom has an orchid plant that she forgot about and left out in the cold. They haven't bloomed in years. Today, a miracle, the orchilds bloomed, just for Henry! 

A beautiful reminder of Henry's spirit, still watching over his family. 

May Henry's family be lifted up in prayer and love and be comforted. 

Catherine drew a Christmas tree for Henry. 

Have fun in Heaven sweet boy!
