"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

At the Cemetery
It was my sister Melanie's suggestion that we give everyone a helium filled balloon so they could let it go at the cemetery. At first it seemed a strange thing to do when she first suggested it, but at the time it was a peaceful representation of the departure of my Dad. I will eternally thank her for this suggestion. I hope that my grandkids will remember this one thing if they remember nothing else about the funeral. Colin Campbell's dedication of the grave site was special as he called for the ground to be hallowed and to be a place where family members can come to seek peace and solace.
