I am so sorry that I did not put the information about Amber's funeral up last night.  I was running on 6 hours of sleep in 72 hours and not thinking clearly. 

Amber's viewing will be held on Sunday, October 18, 2009 from 6:00-8:00pm at:
Myer's Mortuary
205 S. 100 E.
Brigham City, UT 
(435) 723-8484

Funeral Services for Amber will be Monday, October 19, 2009 at 2:00pm.  There will be a viewing from 12:30-1:40pm at the same location
Perry Utah LDS Stake Center
685 W. 2250 S.
Perry, UT

Many have asked for a place to send flowers for the funeral, I am totally inexperienced at this but apparently those can be sent to the mortuary and they will handle getting them to the viewing and funeral.  WHAT A RELIEF!  I thought I was going to have to find a flower ferry. 

Some have asked how they can help with the funeral or donate to the kids kind of like a trust account.  I have heard about these when other younger mom's or dad's have died or seen these on other obituaries but I haven't really thought about it in our case.  The tough guy side of me says to tell those who have asked that I have it all under control and I'll be just fine.  The part of me that has leaned a great deal over the last couple of years about the depths of people's kindness and generosity and who has experienced the joy of doing kind thing for others on occasions says I need to allow people who want to help to do so.  Any donations will be used to help with the funeral costs with any left over to benefit Amber's children.

Donations can be made to the following account:

Amber Chase Cancer Fund (Account Title)
America First Credit Union
P.O. Box 9199
Ogden, UT  84409

We have been doing pretty well considering.  I feel as if I personally have been spared some of the pain at this point by a loving Savior who knows what I can handle and has poured out his mercy upon me.  The kids are doing well.  Blake told me that so far it has not hurt as bad as he imagined it would.  We all know that tougher days are ahead.  We also know that turning to the Savior and trusting him for your strength and the healing of your heart is the answer whether you are fighting a disease, pleading for a loved one who is suffering, or dealing with the greatest loss and pain.  He is still the answer!  He is the way, the truth, and the life!

A special and heartfelt thank you for the many who have reached out to our family in word, deed, or prayer since Amber's passing.  Your loving kindness is soothing salve to the suffering soul.  You are truly showing us the Savior's love.

I don't know how often Dan has had time for reading the comments on this blog, but I figured I'd answer the question Barb posted to try and be helpful. I'm sure funeral arrangements are intimidating.

Please accept my deepest sympathy. It was good talking to you last time I was in town. I have been reading Amber's site for about a year now. It is totally wonderful. You should contact a publisher about having it published. She was a good writer. I know it won't be easy but I wish you and the children all the help God can give.

I was so sorry to hear about Amber. We were friends when we were young but have been out of touch for some time. I just wanted to tell you all how sorry I am for your loss.

Dear Dan,
What a beautiful, inspirational funeral you had for Amber today! I was deeply touched by all of the loving memories given by Amber's brothers and sisters and Mom; but especially by the sweet words spoken by your children and the uplifting, courageous, and faith-filled talk you gave! Thank you for your radiant example. May our kind, merciful Heavenly Father comfort, watch over, and bless you and your family abundantly. We will be praying for all of you!

Dear Dan and children, I too was touched by the funeral yesterday. The talks by the family were touching, but also the talks given by President Reeder and President Tams. It was so touching when President Tams left you and your family with a blessing. The prayers were beautiful and the opening and closing hymns are two that I have requested be sung at my funeral. Your children were so dear and sweet and excellant speakers.. They will continue with the sunshine! President Reeder commented on how the children and you would know when their mother was near. I mentioned in my last comment that I wanted to get you a copy of a song called, "I'll Build You a Rainbow", (Families are Forever). I was unable to find it in my old files, but Grant found it on a website with a video of the song. It's the story of a mother who knows she is going to die and she tells her son that the way he would know that she was close would be everytime he saw a rainbow. I was the last person to leave the church yesterday and when I went out the east door, there was the brightest most perfect rainbow, and I so hoped that it was there when you all went outside. It just added that special touch. I kept thinking I would also like to send you some recordings that I have made with me playing inspirational music and my family singing some of the songs. I felt that Amber would have enjoyed listening to it. I was so happy when I heard Denise say that you played it all day during Amber's last week. I know it would have calmed and comforted her. The hymns are so powerful. I had a sister in my ward who lost her husband and she was left with 5 children. I had her make me a list of her favorite songs and then I made a recording for her. I would love to send them to you. Russell and Emily sing on it as well. We will continue to pray for you. I hope to be half the woman Amber was. Love, Vickie

Dear Dan and children, I typed this once but it didn't submit it, so hopefully you don't get it twice. I too was so touched by the funeral. The family talks and prayers, but especially you and your sweet children. Their sweet spirits and testimonies were radiant. They are great speakers as well! They will carry on the sunshine. I thought a lot about sending some recordings I have made of the hymns and other inspirational music. There was a sister in our ward who lost her husband and was left with 5 children. I had her make me a list of her favorite songs and then I made a recording for her. It;s just me playing the piano and organ, my girls doing the flute and violin, and some singing which includes Russell and Emily. I felt that it would be comforting and calming to Amber as she laid there still on earth but so close to heaven. I was so happy to hear Denise say that you had played music all day for her during that last week. There is such power in the hymns. I also enjoyed President Reeder's talk about how to know when your mother and wife would be near. In the last comment I sent, I mentioned that I wanted to get you a copy of the song, "I'll Build You a Rainbow, (Families are Forever)." I tried to find it in some of my old files, but was unable to. We are still working on it. Grant did find a website that had it showing on a video. It's the story of a young mother who knows she is going to die and she is trying to tell her son how he will know when she is close by. She tells him that every time he sees a rainbow, it will remind him that she is near. I was the last person to leave the church yesterday and when I went out the east door, there was the most brilliant, perfectly shaped rainbow on the northeast corner. I so hoped that it was there when the family all left. It added that perfect final touch. I also loved when President Tams left a blessing on you and your family. Our family will continue to pray for your family. You are all very special. I hope to be half the woman that Amber was and continues to be. Love, Vickie

Dear Dan and Amber

I want to thank you for this journey that you have taken us all on. Although the journey did not end in what was hoped for, this journey taught us all many life lessons.

I want to thank you for being a friend to me and to all you have come in contact with. You have loved all you have come in contact with unconditionally.

I want to thank you for the example that both of you set for all of us. Your blogs were a well spring of inspiration to each of us as we watched you go through this ordeal. We were inspired by the relationship that you developed with your Heavenly Father. We were inspired by the faith that you placed in your Heavenly Father. We were inspired by your willingness to not only give charity but to receive it as well. Your Heavenly Father truly has a place set aside for you in heaven.

May the Lord continue to bless you and your family in the future as you work to keep the covenants you have made with him so that you can indeed be an eternal family.

Dan & Family:
