Video link

Hello friends 

 The link to the videos of Lenora's Funeral will remain active until the 10th of August. So if you want to see them do so this week. Thank you for following Lenora's story here. I trust you have been encouraged and challenged to follow God more closely.

Good morning,
Below you will find three video tributes we put together in memory of Lenora. These will be showed on the funeral.
Please scroll down to the bottom and there you will once again find the link to the live stream event and more information about the streaming. So please scroll to the bottom and read the entire post.

Lenora's closest and best friend Darlene Penner, sang lead on the song "Friends are Friends Forever".

Now to the streaming. I wish I could promise you a flawless experience. I can't. But we'll do our best.
We plan to be using SLR cameras for streaming because of technical reasons.. One of their limitations are battery span; chances are pretty good that the screen will go black with a sparkco advertisement while it's off, during the time we are changing batteries. So if you suddenly see a screen with a link and advertisement, just ignore it. Hopefully it'll soon be back to a video stream. (We hope to be able to have a quick switch and it shouldn't take long.)
We may also from time to time throw up a still image of Lenora or something related like that while we do battery switch or reposition cameras so don't be alarmed if you see a still image for a minute.

And if you have questions, don't be afraid to use the chat.

Finally, the funeral starts at 2 PM Central Time. We hope to have a steady feed up at 1:30 or sooner. There's a choir and stuff before 2 already so you might wanna tune in for that.
The burial is out of town so there for a few hours the broadcast will be off. But for family and friends who want to see the reception later too, we plan to also broadcast that but I haven't heard an exact time for that. That will just kind of happen once the meal is over and so on.

Here is the link again.

Streaming Funeral Online

Dear friends/supporters of the Loewens,
Below you will see a link to watch the funeral live on Saturday; Our aim is perfection - but we are still somewhat limited to technology on this edge of the planet.

(NOTE: Let there be no confusion: the funeral starts at 2:00 PM Central Standard Time - regardless of what the "event" on livestream says. I'm not 100% sure what timezone it is running on.)

Please do try watching it if you can't make it here in person; and we would welcome you to join in on the chat as well and give us feedback on how the view is. I hope to be able to have someone monitor the chats and respond if there are any issues.

If something is plain not working or the audio is terrible, put it in the chat; if there is no change within 60 seconds, (in our testing there is a slight delay) then please text me at 204, 494, 1234.

Finally free!!

Lenora passed on peacefully. Her face turned redder and redder until it was blue then her breathing slowed until she stopped breathing altogether.
I will be posting further plans later.
