we had the visitation on thursday and then the graveside service was the next day…

mom and grandma put together a little bag of goodies (stickers and crayons and toys, oh my!) to keep jasper lilith occupied during the memorial lunch and then the service – very smart of them!

she dove right into the bag (grandma and mom, she loved the gumbyesque rabbits!) and between the bag and the indoor playground, she was kept very busy…  whew!

we brought the bag to the service just in case but it turned out not to be necessary once we got there…  mom had jasper on her lap the entire time and jasper was perfectly content sitting there and keeping her company…

she understood it was a solemn and sad occasion and was very quiet and respectful during the service – she even sung with us and murmured the lords prayer with us (she wasn’t really saying the words, she just kind of whispered low under her voice and followed the rhythm of the spoken prayer)…

jasper was definitely a comfort to us all – she was just perfect and impressed us all…  there is nothing like a child to remind everyone of the good things in life is there?
