A beautiful closure

Christopher Jon Keller's funeral was this morning with close to 150 people in attendance. It was a beautiful closure ceremony with a reception afterwards.
Chris was 41. I remember being 41 - full of energy, life was full of possibility, lots of friends to do things with and places to go. Chris has two boys and he coached them in sports. So much to come...

At the calling event Friday afternoon, over 400 people showed to pay their respects to the family. Chris was one of the 'good guys' and the volume of people reflected his impact in the community in his short number of years.

As the funeral ended, there was not a dry eye in the house. While it is a closure, now the real work begins for Chris' family. They do not have a normal life to go back to like the rest of us.
