Today we brought jars of hydrangeas to Daniel's funeral.
Dub delivered the eulogy, and because he was Daniel's scoutmaster he also awarded the family life merit badge to Daniel's mother on his behalf.  
Daniel had fulfilled all of the requirements for family life, and had not yet received it.  As part of his remarks, Dub shared some of what Daniel had written in his family life packet.  To the question "Tell why families are important" he responded 
"We help each other get through things."  
I know he's helping his family get through this really sad thing.  
We miss him.

I thought about him and his sweet family today--I think about them EVERY day. Such incredible strength! I'm sure Daniel is helping them.

Such a sad day for his family and friends. The flowers are beautiful, and what a nice honor to give his family from scouting. I am sure it will mean a lot to them. Sympathies to his family.

Is this the car accident family? If so I didn't know you knew them that well. Such a sad thing. So grateful for a bit of perspective. The flowers are beautiful.
