A beautiful lady Nicole had asked local florists if anyone was able to donate flowers for Aaron's funeral. We were overwhelmed with so many beautiful flowers from different florists around town, and it was lovely to have so many beautiful roses to use at the cemetery.
balloon release like with Noah, and of course the choice of colours had to be Hawthorn.
Our Bishop and friend from church Corey Bailey dedicated his grave, while the casket was being lowered.
Straight after the casket was lowered we released the balloons. It was so different to Noah's balloon release. When we did it at Noah's burial all the kids yelled 'Bye Noah' with happy voices like they knew how happy he must've been. With Aaron's everyone was just so quiet as we released them. Everyone just stood around his grave in silence for a very long time, still not really believing what was happening.
Some of Aaron's students had brought along some of their own balloons and asked me if I would like to use them to release at Noah's grave.
A lot of the people had already moved over to Noah's grave, so we headed over and Kobe and Harri released them.
Harri and Kobe had everyone laughing while I was kneeling at Noah's grave as they decided they were going to make me into a 'rock star' and tease up my hair. Thank goodness for my crazy boys who know how to lighten the mood when it's needed.
The whole day just seems like a dream now, and we're still not really believing it's real.
