A Community Mourns With A Stranger

One of our church members, Diane Reiman was touched by the small community of strangers in Evansville Wyoming who came together to honor her brother Stephen, a Navy Veteran, who had died.  A woman she’d never met, the town coroner (Connie Jacobson) had arranged for the funeral for her brother with Military honors.  Among the mourners were the nurses who had cared for Stephen when he died.

Diane said, “A special place in my heart goes out to those nurses in the ICU who came to this service to tell me they were there for him when he died”.

This funeral drew national attention as hundreds of mourners filled the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery chapel to pay their respects for Stephen and mourn with Diane.  Please see the link for the NBC Nightly News below.
