Evie’s funeral was held Saturday morning at 9:00 am. We were surrounded by loved ones. The weather was chilly and breezy, but somehow the wind reminded me that God was in the midst of us.
Her memorial was held at 10:30 at Norfolk Botanical Garden. It was an absolutely gorgeous venue provided for us by a very generous friend. Evie was honored fondly with loving words and touching songs. Many friends poured their best efforts into the food and fun dessert table. And most importantly the hope we have in our Savior was presented so clearly.
It was a sad day but there was also much rejoicing. My dear friend Chani was there once again to capture the moments. I won’t say much more – I think the pictures speak for themselves and tell the beautiful story of Evie’s special day.

I can’t say thank you enough to the people who made Saturday possible. It was so amazing to see my little girl honored with such love. It is truly a treasure for my hurting heart to remember.
