As pictures of Debbie Lance scroll across a video screen at the First Baptist Church of Lewisville, 7-year old Dooley Lance puts his arm around his father, Jason Lance.
Debbie died last week of congenital heart failure, but Jason will say his wife died of a 'broken' heart.
The couple's oldest son, Montana, died two years ago after hanging himself. He was the victim of bullying and that prompted the family -- especially Debbie -- to go on an anti-bullying mission. Her work gained national attention.
This wasn't the first tragedy for the Lance family. Years ago, a third son died just days after birth.
"I'm proud to say Debbie is my friend," says friend Tim Kirby, "and (she) will always be my friend," Kirby said at the funeral.
Others who spoke said she was a compassionate person, who would drop everything to help a friend in need.
Jason Lance says he and the couple's only living son Dooley will continue the anti-bullying campaign, despite Debbie's death.
