We had Alyssa's service Saturday, August 19. It was beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anything better to honor and celebrate Alyssa's life. It was also hard. But having friends and family with us helped tremendously. Jamie and I were able to read poems for our little girl. I don't know how we did it but we did.
It still continues to amaze me at how my little girl has impacted others. Every day when I check the mail there are cards from people I don't know saying how much she has touched them. Thank you to everyone who has thought of us. Your words encourage and comfort us.
Here is a link to a video we showed at her service. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr4J_GM-DSU
