Memorial Gathering Information:

Sunday, March 19, 1-4pm
Grange Audubon Nature Center
505 W Whittier St, Columbus, OH 43215
(Free parking)
Light appetizers, beer and wine provided.

Feel free to bring an item or photo or writing to display or share with others, if you wish.

There is no formal program, so you may come and go as fits your schedule. A slideshow will be playing on repeat and some items will be displayed on tables.

We are also arranging for an audio recording booth for those who wish to share a memory or eulogy, so that the family and all attendees can listen to the recordings afterward. The event itself will be an open house, and you are free to come and go as you wish. The reason for the recording booth is that we want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to share verbally if they wish to, and that no one misses anything, while also not filling the event with formal remarks that limit the ability of people to mingle, talk and reminisce freely.

We look forward to seeing you in celebration.

Daniel’s specific written wishes were that everyone should be fully self-expressed in their appearance. Wear your piercings. Uncover your tattoos. Wear clothing that is authentic to you, whether that be professional, sexy, outdoorsy, goth or something else. This is not an occasion for anyone to feel they have to put on “funeral home clothes.” Be yourself. That is what he wanted.

(For those who cannot attend in person, please RSVP with a 0 for number of guests. We will send a link to some sort of virtual experience, or at least an opportunity to record your thoughts and later receive the recordings of others.)
