I just wanted to let you know that we have scheduled the memorial service and celebration of Dad's life for Saturday, October 15th at 11:00 A.M. It will be at Emmanuel Church, 5th and Harvard in Burbank. There will also be a reception following the service in Elizabeth Hall at the church.
Those former BHS students, basketball players, Tahquitz Pines Camp alumni, paddle ball competitors and any and all of the special people who loved my Dad would be welcome to attend if they are able to. It would be wonderful to see everyone......kind of like a mini-reunion. I know so many of our former classmates and Dad's students live far away from Burbank (including you, my dear friend!) and would not be able to make the trip so I would just ask that you all maybe take a minute that day and think of my Dad. I hope that would put a smile on your face..................nothing would make him happier!
If you could pass this on, Cathy, that would be great. If anyone has any questions about the service they can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org My family and I so appreciate the cards and e-mails we have received. It is such a comfort to know how many people loved Dad and how many lives he touched with his humor and his love of history. I am one of them!
I have also attached a couple of pictures of Dad as I like to remember him................teaching, active, and one with my Mom at the house they loved in Balboa Island.
