A Trip for Charlie

We took a very short trip to Vegas to attend the funeral of Charlie Harris. He passed away a few weeks after he was born and we were able to be there to hear his incredibly faithful and strong parents, Josh and Rachel honor him at the funeral. We were amazed at their strength. This is their second child they've lost to this genetic disease (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). We were grateful that we were there for it and had them, and continue to have them, in our thoughts and prayers.

I can't believe the human heart can survive the loss of a child let alone two. Sweet little people.

That is a very cute picture. It was adorable seeing this sea of blonde boys walk in.
