Annie's Funeral

Our little niece, Annie, passed away in early February at just 5 and a half months old.  Her parents are Travis and Rozzie (Travis is Bo's brother).  She was born with lots of complications to her heart and abdomen, but she was a tough fighter until the end.  Knowing that in times like this family is the most important thing, we were fortunate to find affordable tickets to Seattle at the last minute, and were able to be there for the funeral.  Actually the kids and I were able to come a week before the funeral, and Bo joined us just for the weekend of the funeral.  We got to spend a lot of time with Travis and Rozzie, along with their two boys, Lane and Palmer. Grandma Sandy was there too.  We pretty much hung out with them every day, and in the evenings we crashed at Ivin and Christina's. 
I didn't get many pictures, okay two, from the funeral because one, it was freezing cold, two, who takes pictures at a funeral? And three, my camera's battery was dying.  I'll have to steal some from Terra...
Annie's funeral was emotional but wonderful.  You could definitely feel the love of those attending, and more importantly, the Spirit and love from our Savior. This trial has really strengthened our testimonies and we are so extremely grateful that families get to be together forever.

The Beus sisters/sisters in law!  Terra, Amanda, Rozzie, me, and Michelle.
