Andee's farewell Saturday June 14th 1:00pm

Well the time has come for those up north to say goodbye to Andee. In
many was this is for you all as I have had my say. What I would like
from this is for people to met up, have few snacks, tell some stories
and have enjoy the company. If others want add something else a I
pretty open to that. Just remember that Andee was a rather informal
person and in her last years came to require the truth from those
around her no rosy stories unless they are read roses.

So here is the deal Russ and Dee, old friends, have volunteered their
house and weather bearing we will meet up at 1:00 for a bit of a

Here is what you can do:
-Well this is a potluck after all. What would Andee want to eat?
-Think if there is something that you would like to say.
-Plants not cut flowers. If you feel the need to bring flowers please
bring something that you can take home with you to plant.

Here is what will be there:
-Some tables and chairs
-A couple of cases of real Mexican Coca Cola for a toast.
-Assorted picnic tableware
-me, Tom and Russ.

Rough schedule:
1:00 People and can show up and snack/eat a bit
1:30 I'll make some introductions of the various areas of Andee's life if needed
I'll say few things and then others can if they wish
2:00 Then people can chat for a while and eat some more.

In the mean time I would ask you all to do something good for the kid,
cat or plant closest to you and have Coke.

All of that said here is why I have not said anything about memorials.
We are each of us memorials for Andee. She effected each of us for
good or bad in many way and changed many of us. So we are each living
memorials of Andee just as those that we effect will be memorials for
us when we are gone, dead or just moved on to the next town or
country. This is a chance for celebrate Andee.

Contact me for the address and if you have any questions

Several people have discussed some "lasting" memorials for Andee. Some of us are contributing to the Friends of Manito Park to pay for a Dogwood tree planted on the park. The cost of one tree is US$225. A small plaque can go up in the Gaiser Conservatory in the park.

Others are interested in funding some school activities if we can find a way to feed money to that.

Others, still in Mexico, talked about installing some sturdy trash barrels near the beach and on the garbage truck route so that folks can continue to pick up beach trash and have places to put it.

I have the dogwood tree purchase in progress with the park so I can collect funds from anyone interested in that. All of these ideas are "good things" that are good to happen as a memorial or just because.
