Last night was Sara’s wake, and it was beautiful.
Hundreds of people streamed into the church to honor Sara’s life.
They were greeted by a big screen with a slideshow of photos of her with the people she loved, her painted canvases and more photos.
Sara was wearing a shirt that said, It’s Not About Me. Before she passed away she told me that she would be wearing the shirt because it was her last chance to tell people that life is all about God.
Little did she know the impact her story would continue to have after her death.
Oh Sara. How we love you so.
Her hands had two rosaries wrapped in them. One was the rosary Matthew bought Sara while in Bolivia with World Vision. I went back and read the email of thanks she sent and was moved again by her profound words:
When I am in the kind of pain where I want to put my head against the wall I hold onto a rosary, even when I don’t have the strength to pray it. Because it reminds me that He’s here even when I can’t feel anything but the situation I’m in.
Oh Sara, you are with Him now!
Today the funeral will be at St. Cecilia’s at 1:30 p.m. and you can be there, right from your computer.
The Frankl family has arranged for the service to be streamed (fingers crossed that it works).
Go to Siouxland Community Christian School’s Athletics page and click on the link at the bottom of the page, beneath Live Video from SCCS Sports. At 1:30 the stream will hopefully be up and live.
We feel blanketed by your prayers during this time.
