Notices, Workshops & Rides: Celebration Thank you!
Thank you to all who made the Celebration of Life for Charles such a wonderful and powerful evening.
With great appreciation to Charles' parents, Josée and Bob, for both joining us in the celebration, but also for including us in the scattering of ashes earlier in the day. Many felt a sense of closure and connection.
To all the volunteers, Dancing Wolf and set up/take down team, it was beautifully imagined and orchestrated. Jen Stevens and the kitchen/clean up crew made the potluck seem totally seamless. Lisa Day for the amazing collaborative visual show of Charles' life and the scrapbook for his parents, beautiful and priceless. To every person who picked up a table or moved a chair, you showed up and made this event a success. Thank you to anyone I am missing (super tired), you made this possible!!
To the Ellingsen family for so very kindly offering our event the benefit of your beautiful floral arrangements, stunning illuminated arbutus, and the energy of love that filled the room when we walked in. We thank you so much and send our blessings to each of you.
Thanks to everyone who shared an experience of Charles. We were showered with poetry, songs, stories, bringing laughter and tears. It was an act of love that we won't forget. We appreciate those of you who came an extra distance to attend, a commitment of true love.
Love and blessings to all,
Edward & Kira
