Photo Journal of Abby's funeral ~ Take 3 ~ July 19, 2014

So my sweet artsy friend Alaynna Schwartz of Playlife Photography showed up tonite with her absolutely amazing photos of Abby's funeral.  They represent so many special details of the day that said ABBY loud and clear. Each tells a story in a very personal way and leaves no need for captions. I am in love with the detail, expressions, lines, feet, people
So with our further they are!  I hope you will enjoy seeing them as much as we did the first time.

I have no idea who this little cutie is?

the tribute brought laughter amidst the tears...

Even Uncle Steven had bare feet

Hunter insisted on opening Abby's "lid" once more...I can still hear his words here
"bye bye Abby"

Abby's little Sunday school classmates/friends 

The releasing of the balloons ~ symbolic in many ways

I can not say enough about my siblings...they literally did everything for me during the blur of horror
from telling me what to wear, to doing my hair and making sure I ate and drank to bossing the line along when I hyperventilated at the viewing....Love them so!


  1. Dear Dorothy, I am a friend of Sherri Bontrager and others that you know who have posted this tragedy. No words can help your breaking heart, but wanted you to know that I have been praying for you every day since Abby went to heaven. Praying for God's arms to just surround you with strength and comfort. So glad you have a loving family and friends and Jesus to hold you up during this sad journey. God bless you dear mama.

  2. Beautiful in its own way. Very beautiful.
