The show, which started around 9:30 p.m., consisted of about $10,000 worth of sponsor-funded fireworks said to be visible throughout the city. Many, however, drove closer to the church to get a better view.

I loved my time with the Cowboys so of all places I could have gone this was definitely at the top of my list.”
