Legacy Funeral Home...

It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since we decided to go ahead and open up a new Funeral Home, which later became Legacy Funeral Home.  Trust me, it's been a LONG road, and one fraught with new challenges and trials, but it has been such a blessing to get Todd back to doing what he's good at, and what he loves to do.  Legacy Funeral Home has been such a blessing to us, as we are still dealing with the aftermath and lawsuit from selling Allen Funeral Home.  It has given us hope, and it has helped us to stop focusing on ourselves, and our problems, and get back to the work of fixing them, as we serve others.

This last week, we had the opportunity to serve a family from our old ward in Mesa, and some of our dear friends. Our friend died suddenly, with no warning, of a massive stroke.  He bore his testimony on Sunday, and collapsed on Monday morning, never to regain consciousness, leaving behind a young wife, children, and some grandchildren.  For me, funerals are always a reminder to be mindful of our mortality, and tell others how we feel about them each and every day.  Life is precious, and we never know how much time we have.  As I talked to this mans widow at the funeral, she expressed to me how kind and loving Todd has been to their family.  She told me how much she appreciated him helping her, and how grateful they all were for him, for his kind, compassionate demeanor.  It's amazing to me that over the years, I have heard this again and again as he has served thousands of families. It is truly what he was meant to do, and I think when my husband crosses over one day to the other side, there will be many there to thank him for how he served them. It is truly a sacred profession, the kind of profession not everyone gets to enjoy.  I am so grateful for him, and the way he sacrifices time with his family to help other families in their time of grief.  It's not always an easy profession, but it is worth it.

I was down at the Funeral Home yesterday, taking some pictures for our website, so I thought I would post them here.  We are in a great location, on Arizona Avenue, and Knox Rd., in Chandler, and feel so blessed that we were able to find a building in an area of town we have wanted to get into for a very long time.  Sometimes, when times are the most challenging is when God shows us the most blessings.  We are grateful for our new business, grateful for a new start, and grateful for a Heavenly Father who shows us tender mercies daily.
