I’m not really ready for a proper update yet, but I at least wanted to give you a few snippets from yesterday for those that weren’t able to attend Eli’s Celebration of Life. Eventually I hope to have the entire service posted online for people to watch at their convenience. It was an amazing service and I would hate for any of Eli’s Army to miss the opportunity to see it for themselves. I wanted to share the two Animoto videos that we played during the service as well as the tribute speeches that Lacey and I wrote. Finally, KCCI requested permission to come to the service and take video. That night, they put together a great news piece that played in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and even Omaha, Nebraska. I’ll link to that video as well. The amount of support has been nothing short of amazing and I’m sure I’ll touch more on that later. For now, please enjoy the videos and tributes.

Also, we have decided that we will remove the username/password requirements for reading this site. You can still sign up to get these updates via email on the right hand side, and you’ll still need a login to leave a comment, but since it’s so easy to leave comments on Facebook, we’ll at least remove the hurdle of needing a login to see any future updates we post here. Eventually I’ll remove the login requirement on previous posts as well.
Thank you all!
