As we finished up preparations for the memorial, we wanted to make everyone aware of a couple things. First off, please take photos of you all releasing the pink balloons with Kayleigh's note(see previous post) attached on Sunday at 4:00pm (EST). I would like to do a new post next week and show all the photos.
Also, a good friend, Niecey, did one incredible job of creating a video for us for the memorial. It has a lot of new photos, including the professional photos from "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" and 3 songs that just seemed to be perfect for Kayleigh. Of course, you know one of them ;) I really can't wait to show you the video.
Tomorrow is the big day and my goodness has this week has flown by. Even though everything we prepared is ready, we are not. We barely got a chance at all this week to just lay there, cry our eyes out and miss her. All next week, we will be packing and heading off to the new house. By the way, the bank didn't want to return phone calls to settle things up and decided to sell the property. I guess it was God's way of showing we needed to be out of the house. So once we are done moving, I am sure it is just going to hit us hard like a ton of bricks that she's gone.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers through this. I look forward to meeting a lot of you tomorrow at the memorial and for those who can't make it, we will be sure to recap it all in a post, so you feel as if you were here. Thank you so much for being awesome friends to our family.
A lot of our strength comes from the Lord, but a big chunk of it comes from your support. Every single one of you are family to us and we love you!
