My Girls Funeral/Burial: 2 Years Ago

2 years ago I attended the funeral and saw my two girls get buried, was the original announcement I made:


We invite you to
attend the funeral
in loving memory of

Melody Joy & Madison Hope Delgado
Monday, November 17, 2008
Memorial service @ Heritage Church of Christ in Keller @ 10AM
Graveside Service immediately following @ Bourland Cemetery
Fellowship and food immediately following @ Church of Christ in Keller


Last year I posted a walk through of that event through pictures and captions. You can find that below:


I just posted on my Facebook my favorite pictures with memories from what happened this day last year, I've been meaning to do this for a year now, but it was just to hard to look at some of these pics before:

Photography graciously done by Margaret Lake:
Location: Sovereign Joy Community Church in Keller, TX.


2 years later and it is still hard to look at some of these...

I also forgot that we never posted this video that our friend Trish took and pieced together parts of the funeral and burial.

Towards the middle of the video you will find the part where we were singing "It Is Well With My Soul"... most people singing with tears... then Keith (the man leading) broke out (unplanned) into "How Great Thou Art"... it was one of the most bittersweet, sadly triumphant times of my life... I don't except any non-Christian to understand why.

I have been following your blog since shortly after you had Melody and Madison. I am not sure how I came across it, but have prayed for you and your family and sorrowed with you and joyed with you. Especially when Judah was born! I don't think I have left a comment before but decided to tell you that I have been blessed by your walk of faith with the Lord. Thank you for sharing the most recent photos and videos of your precious daughters. I have had a taste of the sorrow of the loss of children, here on earth, as my daughter has had 7 babies go before her to heaven, the most recent being 4 weeks ago. They are my precious grandbabies and I look forward to being with them again in eternity when the Lord so wills it. The Lord has us walk through some very trying times to sovereignly work His will, but He never leaves nor forsakes us. It brings me joy to see you enjoying the beautiful lives of Kenya, Judah and the love still there and growing for Melody and Madison.
Still praying for you all!
In Christian love,
a grandma in WA
