Funeral Wednesday

Thank you all so so much for all of your comments on the blog, calls, emails, facebook messages/posts with pictures, offers to help. I'm trying to get back to everyone and I will soon. Thank you for all of your love. We are doing better today. We went to the mountians in Britney's favorite spot as a whole family and spent a lot of time there.

We met with the mortuary this morning and the Funeral will be Wednesday at 10:00 am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints Coal Mine Building. Here's the address
10209 W. Coal Mine Ave
Littleton, CO 80128
After speaking with the Funeral Director she told us the best way to send cards or flowers from out of town would be to have them to the Church. The building will be open at 8:00 am that day.

Many people have asked about helping in lots of different ways or sending cards. Me and the kids are staying at my parents house at 12278 W Tennessee place Lakewood, CO 80228. You can email me at any time. I may not get back to you right away but I will.

Also people have asked about the trust fund again. Here's the info we posted last July again.

You can go to any Chase bank. The account is titled for the benefit of Britney. The Acct # is 815195532. Make your donations to John Winkler since Britney was not able to be there in person to set up the account.

Again please don't feel obligated to help in one way or another. We are posting this info because friends and family asked us to. We love all of you and thank you for being such a support during this horrible year we have survived. The greatest miracle in our eyes is who Britney was, how much time we had with her, the love we were given, and the chance to see her again when she has a perfect resurrected body. She is at peace I feel it very strongly and I feel that she knows all of your love and prayers for her and our family. None of it was wasted. The only thing you can take with you when you leave is who you have become, and your relationships. Nothing else matters.



  1. John, Britney would be so pleased at how you have withstood this test of your faith. You have remained strong, questioning circumstances, but never your faith or God's will. You have inspired so many people with your selfless decisions over the past year. The devotion you have for Britney and the kids is exemplary. God bless you!

  2. Beautifully written ~ your example of great faith & patience throughout this past year has truly been remarkable! You have blessed your family with your strength & I know of a surety that Britney is so thankful for you. We send our love to each of you & our prayers are always with you.

  3. Sandy said it well--You HAVE inspired so many with your faith, devotion, selfless decisions,and true GRACE UNDER FIRE. Those of us you don't even know (who have been following this last year from afar) feel blessed to have witnessed your remarkable courage through all of this (and efforts to be a 1st year Res. no less)
    May you and your children have the deepest most tender blessings as you continue on. Your Britney has a seriously WONDERFUL husband.

  4. We are humbled by your faith and peace. We are taught profoundly. Our love is extended to you and your children. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and insights. We have been blessed because of it. We love you.

    Scott and Amy Richins
