CALEB'S MISSION FAREWELL

I was so privileged to have been able to attend Caleb's special day.  The church was so beautifully decorated, April did an amazing job with all of the details that went into the celebration of his life.  I was so moved when April (during her talk) said that "I'll never get to plan a wedding for Caleb, but I WAS able to plan his 'mission farewell'."  I love her perspective, and I love her!
 It was such a tender day for April and her family, but they were so brave the whole day.
SO many people were there to show their support for the Moody family.  The place was packed.
 Directly after the viewing and funeral we headed down the road for the burial.
This is my FAVORITE picture of April from that day.  It shows that in the midst of HARD things...we can still have joy.  I love her contagious smile and beautiful soul.
Right before the balloons were let go...
Beautiful white balloons floating heavenward.


Emily, April and I...
And some more amazing mom's of special needs children.  What a wonderful circle of friends I belong to.
I'm forever grateful for this dear friend/sister of mine.  
 And I will be eternally grateful that she shared her sweet son with me, especially when I was missing mine so much.
I love you Caleb!
