Tin Man's Funeral

Yesterday was Tin Man's funeral.  It was a beautiful celebration of his life, and I'm so thankful to the hundreds of people that came to celebrate with us, but also to be there as support for my kids and me.

This has been a horrible week for us, and we still have a memorial service for him on the 28th.  On the 29th we can try to start picking up the pieces and focus on school and Warrior's 8th grade graduation that's coming up.

Yesterday was really rough on the kids, and Warrior isn't handling it to well at the moment.  Sugar Pea walked over to him and gave him a huge hug and then a kiss on the cheek.  A friend was able to capture this moment with her camera.  This picture speaks volumes, more than the normal 1000 words.  I'm so glad I have these 2 little people in my life and I'm even more thankful that they have each other.

Tin Man was in the Long Beach Junior Concert Band when he was younger, so a fitting tribute to him and all he did in his life was to have the LBJCB drummers and trombones come together.

Tin Man's story impacted so many people from around the world.  I've already had several ask me if they can have permission to tell his story to others.  I've even had a 2 tell me they want to become Donate Life Ambassadors and asked if they could use Patrick's story.

I would give anything to have my husband back with me, but since that's not an option anymore, I will do everything I can to keep his story alive and help him continue to make a difference in people's lives.
