about the Service

On May 7th 2016, our dad's service took place in Georges Island Park under a pavilion overlooking the Hudson River. All of his favorite songs were played via our friend on the guitar and Tibetan singing bowls opened the ceremony. We read our speeches, lit a fire, and ate sausage and peppers (one of dad's favorite.) At the end, we did a butterfly release where live butterflies were set free in the park to symbolize his transition. And each one of us wrote our names, and thoughts on a small stone before throwing it into the river in memory of our father.  

We are so thankful to all who helped us celebrate his life.
