Today I was able to attend the funeral services for Camille Kathleen Waite. It was a beautiful service and very touching. There were few dry eyes in the chapel. I was able to see the Waite family, I haven't seen them in years. Aaron and him mom Kathleen played the piano and organ together for the prelude music. (They are both amazing pianists). The oldest brother Nathan gave a beautiful opening prayer which both invited the spirit to the meeting and gave thanks for the beautiful little girl we were there to celebrate and honor. There were a few very precious moments in the service I want to mention. Camille's older sister was asked if she would like to sing at the funeral. She initially said no, then changed her mind. She said that when she is sad about missing her sister, Camille comes to her in a still small voice and whispers to her that she will be ok. The cousins and Camille's sisters sang "Listen to the Still Small Voice" It was beautiful. Jonathan and Stephanie both gave beautiful talks. While Stephanie was speaking she was holding one of the older girls. As Stephanie began to tear up the little girl picked up a tissue and wiped her mom's eyes. It was adorable and so beautiful to see her try to comfort her mom. It was a beautiful service. I wish I had been able to speak with all the Waites, but was unable to. It was wonderful to see them, I only wish I would have been able to see them under different circumstances. I feel very blessed to have been able to attend the funeral and to hear both Jonathan and Stephanie testify of the Savior and the plan of salvation.
