Daily December Day 18

Today we celebrated the life of a very special lady. My Aunt Nina Burnham. She was a wife, mother, grandmother,sister, aunt, friend. She was loved by so many, and touched so many lives. The church was full and it was truly a time of celebration for the life that she had. We laughed and we cried and in the end it was a service that she would have been very proud of. 
The next few days, weeks, and months are going to be hard, but I know that God is with us. We have truly felt the prayers that have gone up for us. I could not let this day go undocumented and know that she would have have been humbled by the love that everyone felt toward her. 

Her little town of Porterdale loved her and they showed it with a wonderful tribute. She had a full police escort from the funeral home to the church and back to the gravesite. There were 7 police cars leading the way and the first one would drop off the close the intersection and then pick up the rear. Full lights and sirens all the way. She might have been short in stature but she was a giant in the eyes of the people who knew her.
