Kristy Dykes--Celebration of a Life of Inspiration

What a great service!

That may sound too glib, because sending one's loved one on Home ahead of us is always hard.

But I hope that my homegoing will express joy and expectation the way this one did.

They showed a clip of Kristy when she first learned she had brain cancer, thanking the church for their gestures of love, and saying she just wanted to be in the center of God's will. That she believed in healing and always did, but that there are all kinds of healing.

Milton gave a beautiful euology. He held up a fat notebook of Kristy's writings and laughing, said "We'll start on page one."

Members of the family sang beautiful solos. Larry Ford, I think, sang, "I Bowed on my Knees and Cried 'Holy'" and the service ended with "How Great is our God."
