Brigham's Memorial Service

A Memorial Service will be held for Brigham on Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery
7900 E. Main St
Mesa, AZ 85207

(On the North side of Main St, just East of Sossaman)

There will be a come and go "viewing" at 10:00am in the mortuary chapel. Due to Brigham's extreme jaundice, there is a possibility that we will not be having an open casket. We will still have that time in the chapel though, to allow family and friends to pay their respects and feel of the amazing spirit this sweet little boy has brought to our family. There will be many photographs and mementos displayed in Brigham's honor.

There will be a short graveside service and grave site dedicatory prayer offered at 11:00am.

We invite anyone who would like to attend either one or both of these services to please join our family on this special day as we celebrate Brigham.

Rebecca & Justin,

I am a friend of your parents in New Mexico. Our prayers are with you and your family at this time. You are an inspiration to everyone who knows you. We had a similar experience 14 years ago when our son had the same anomaly if you ever want to talk we are here for you.
He is on the right side of our Heavenly Father he is saving a place for you and your family. You truly are blessed.

Take Care

Rebecca, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with you. I feel like I have felt Brigham's spirit without having even met him. I will be there to celebrate with you if at all possible.

Rebecca, thank you for sharing this whole story on your blog. I know it is very personal and I can't even imagine how difficult it has been. Brigham has touched my life and many others, I am sure, even in just his short time here on earth. Our prayers continue for your sweet family to have peace and comfort through this time. Wish I could be there for the memorial.

I wish I still lived in Arizona so I could come by. You are amazing! Seriously I was reading all your posts I wish all the moms in the NICU handled everything so logically and so peacefully. You even gave your daughter an adorable 2nd birthday when you probably had so many other things on your mind! You are a GREAT mom. Best of luck to your little family..I'm so sorry for your loss.

I just wanted to send you a little note to let you know that while I can't be there in person today, my heart is with you. I hope that you have a peaceful day, and feel his little spirit with you. I love you both.

I really wish I could have been there for you today. I can't imagine how difficult this whole thing must be for you. Your attitude and faith through the whole process has been beyond inspirational. You are exemplary to all those who read your blog. I'm grateful that you've been willing to share this experience through your blog. And I know you will be with Brigham again, and it will be an amazing reunion because he knows how much his parents love him. Hang in there!

Love, Karissa
