Jack's Celebration of Life (Edited)

I'm sharing the video montage that the videographer put together without asking for any input from us. I will preface this video with the following: there were beautiful songs sung by Mark's sister and brother - neither of which show up on this video. There were also beautiful talks by several people which also don't show up on the video. The talks that were "featured" weren't in their entirety. I'm not sure why the majority of the video focused on the burial, but the voice over during the burial video is the talk given by our friend Amy. The talk wasn't given at the graveside, it was given during the service. We have no video of the entire funeral service (which most of you don't want to see anyway, but which we paid for). In any event, here is the short version of Jack's Celebration of Life.

Ann - I know the video is not what you had hoped for or expected and I am sorry for that. However, I thought it was beautiful.

Ditto what Claudia said. All I saw was love, love, love for Jack.//.....Evy V

As someone who was present at the services I do think they captured the essence of the love for Jack and your family that we all felt so strongly that day. It's too bad that we can't hear the beautiful words that were spoken by so many, but then that would be a very long video. Perhaps the videographer will burn the raw footage they took onto a disc, for you to do what you like with, even if it's not every moment of the service. It was a beautiful and extremely moving service and I think the video gives people who weren't able to be there a glimpse. XOXO.
