THE BURIAL

This day was harder than the funeral.
The weather coincided with our feelings.
Teary and sad.
It was so hard to leave him there,
knowing that it was so final.
We were grateful to be surrounded by family and friends.
But so sad to be closing this chapter in our mortal life.
We love you Benjamin.
Until we meet again! 
xoxo

oh boy - I am crying every time I visit your blog right now. I love the balloons. Your family seems so lovely and close and I can tell you have amazing friends. I'm glad you have these photos. Even though it must've been the hardest day of your life I think it's nice to have the photos to look back on.

Becky what a difficult day. The flowers are gorgeous and you can again feel the love surrounding your family.
When I saw that second picture with the balloons in the sky my first thought was that they are in the shape of his elephant friend.
sending lots of hugs, love you guys.

Having never met Ben,or the family, I have been following every post that a friend has posted here on FB. What an incredible young boy Ben was, and wished I had met him, and the family.

Seeing this final moment made me cry uncontrollably but from all the posts I've read,the support from family, & friends will help you get thru this trying time.

The photos of Ben were absolutely adorable and such great memories for you all to look back on.

RIP Ben ♥

The rainy weather makes all the colors vibrant and green in these photos. Beautiful...but my heart aches for you. Still praying for you all. Sunny weather ahead.

Oh my what beautiful pictures you have to cherish. I am so sorry that you have to even go through it. It seems like his burial day was the same type of weather as CJ's was... pretty rainy and teary. You definitely have the love of each other to carry you through the most trying times.
The pictures broke my heart...but I know that he is in a better place, playing with the angels.
May you all be blessed by God, and find comfort in each other. Love and God Bless~

Becky I am just getting caught up on everyone's blogs, and yours has me in absolute tears. I was okay looking at the pictures, thinking how beautiful they are .. until the name plate one. That one did me in, and now I have so many tears for your sweet family.
