It's been a long day. Memorial Service (Celebration of Armando's Life) will be on Wednesday in the afternoon.

I wanted to post a video that my son had made using the ANTM theme song but I don't know how to do that. I wanted to share him with ya'll.

Grandma, I'm SO sorry for your loss, but I'm glad you had the time with him that you did. Everyone is in our lives for a reason, regardless of the length of time, and he was in your life to give you the amazing years you had with him. As that amazing poet once said, "Don't cry because it is over. Smile because it happened." We're all here for you, no matter what.

As for the video, send me whatever you have (website link, YouTube address/username, etc) and I'll make sure it gets posted for everyone to see and enjoy.

Grandma, I am so sorry for your loss! Looking back, I'm so glad that you got to spend that time with him these past few months. You were so invested in him, and despite it seeming so fruitless at the time (not being able to figure out what was going on) I can't help but feel like God was using that time to give you more with your son. I didn't even know Armando, but your stories always made me feel like he was such a special person. If we've learned anything about him these past few months, it's that he was and will always be very much loved. I admire your strength in ways that words can't describe, and will be praying for you!

I did it! Damn!

This video is the first one Armando ever made. There are lots of other people in it. But the first person, and the last that you see, are my son the way I want to remember him. Such a beautiful soul.

I sent you a link, Sheldon, to the other one that I can't get to come up for some reason. Thank you so much!

No one has to watch. Just sharing because it's how I feel right now.

The information on his memorial service, if anyone wants it, is 2pm Wednesday, October 30th, Bellevue Memorial Chapel, 2202 Hancock St, Bellevue NE 68005. Of course who in the hell wants to live in Omaha, but hey, if anyone does, you're welcome to come celebrate his life with us.
