Celebrate Uncle LaMar's Life

LaMar's funeral was perfect from beginning to end. The girls sang "Families Are Forever" and LaMar's brother,sister, nephew and daughter spoke. We had some special friends from our Hauula ward sing Aloha Oe. The graveside service was amazing. A family friend sang the Marine Corp Hymn, someone played Taps and then they did a 21 gun salute. After all that the family members put their leis the casket. It was an emotional day.

Priceless moments we won't forget

Priceless moments we won't forget. Uncle LaMar played baseball with Malia most of the day on Christmas. He even went and bought her a left handed baseball glove. They had so much fun. LaMar always said that Malia should of been a Heywood. They had a special relationship. We love you Uncle LaMar!

Family memories with the Heywoods

Priceless moments we will never forget. LaMar and Malia were inseperable on Christmas Day.
Malia got a baseball and bat from Santa. Uncle LaMar and her played baseball all morning. The next day LaMar went out an bought Malia a left handed baseball glove. They had so much fun together. LaMar always said that Malia should have been a Heywood.
We Love You Uncle LaMar!

June Update

EricRoss graduated from seminary and high school this year. It's hard to believe that he's that old. He went to Philadelphia for the month of June to sell alarm systems. On June 25th we lost our dear friend and brother LaMar Heywood. So I flew out to be with Yasmin and the family and EricRoss came from Philly to be with the Heywoods. It's hard to explain the love and loss that we feel at this time. We were blessed to have LaMar, Yasmin and the kids spend this last Christmas with us in Texas. We have wonderful memories of our last visit with Uncle LaMar. Yasmin is doing well. She gains her great strength from the Lord. There has been an amazing out pouring of love and support from all those that knew and loved LaMar.
