This time around I let an old friend tell the tale of his parent’s whirlwind wedding that involved a ring locked in a bank vault over the Thanksgiving holiday, a Billy Graham Crusade and a potential court-martial. It may sound crazy but it’s kind of par for the course for the family of Neal Hallford.
Broken, But Full
Memories of loved ones too soon gone are kept alive through stories, stories that tell who they were and who they still are. Recently, I gave an interview about becoming grateful through tragedy. In the interview, I discussed our journey through the loss of our son, Jacob. Even after the interview, there’s still lots to tell about how our hearts are broken, but full. Full of memories of the good he put into the world.
These particular memories involve a CD found in his car and a simple trip to the grocery store turned into something more. The stories behind them leave our hearts broken, but full.
