Memories on Our Wall.
At Sean’s Grave. 

Today, we remember. We weep, because we love. We rejoice in the gift of you. We read God’s promise, twice. Hymns echo in our hearts, resonating in the hollow places your lifeprints left there.


Sean Michael Lagrand
July 13, 1981 – September 25, 2006
Edited to add: To clarify, while Sean was on active duty, he died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident here at home. Some details are here.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
(Revelation 21:1-4; NLT)
