    A tribute from the Newell High Class of 1981, of which Grace was a member, was supposed to have been read during the service but the reader did not arrive on time. Thanks to technology, the text of the message was read at the graveside from a smartphone.

    Getting ready for the committal - ashes to ashes, dust to dust...





    At this point, I could not begin to imagine what was going through Bre's mind. As I looked at her, the nagging question in the back of my mind was - how does a child say goodbye to a parent? If adults could not hold it together, what could we reasonably expect from a child? But there she was, trying to be strong, trying to be brave. Were the tears in her eyes from the cold blowing wind or were they from her own inner pain? Maybe it was a little bit of one and so much more of the other.

    Then it was time to lower the casket, with what was left of Sweets, into the ground. From the earth we came and to the earth we return.

    It was symbolic yet so profoundly meaningful. Persons taking turns pouring a shovel with dirt into the hole onto the casket. At this point Sweetssop's girls could not watch and understandably so. As the clumps of dirt fell on the casket, the echo from each thud was loud. We knew Grace was gone but as long as the casket was above ground, denial was our friend. Maybe it was all a sick joke and she would open the casket, pop up like Jack-in-a-box and say "Gotcha!" However, there would be such thing. Now it was in the ground and we had started to cover it with dirt. It was so surreal; so final.

    Saying goodbye to a friend...



    Up to now she had managed to hold it together. Here, the strain showed...



    When it was my turn, the shovel felt like it weighed a thousand pounds....
