The services for Brent were amazing. Each of his children spoke and paid wonderful tribute to their father. He was always very firm in his testimony of the gospel and of Jesus Christ. He passed that legacy on to his children. Each one mentioned his amazing work ethic and how he taught them to work hard and to love work. They also mentioned that they never heard their dad swear his whole life long. LaRue also gave a beautiful sermon - the best I have ever heard at a funeral. She is firm in the gospel and firm in her belief of eternal life and our potential as children of God. She has been such a wonderful big sister to me all of my life. I love her so much!
Above are Brent's three sons: Cody, Chuck and Kendall (all three are dentists!). Holly, the oldest daughter is sitting to the right.
Brent was in the National Guard for a few years, so LaRue was presented with a flag.
My brother, Dave is helping my dear old dad walk to the car after the dedication of the grave. It was hard for my dad to see LaRue lose her husband. He sat beside her and comforted her as best he could. He knows what it's like to loose your sweetheart.
All of the Harris cousins were there except for KC, who is serving a mission. What a wonderful tribute to Brent and LaRue to have all of these amazing nieces and nephews there. Katie thought it would be fun to get a picture of my dad with all of his grandkids. I love my Harris family so much! Each one is talented, smart, good looking, and part of a wonderful eternal family. There is nothing like family!
I know there will be some difficult days ahead for my sister. But I also know that she is strong and determined. She will move forward and continue to grow and have joy. She has many amazing qualities and talents that will bless us all, and everyone she knows, as life goes on. We know that death is part of life, and that it is NOT the end!
