Celebrate with us!

(Some people may not have seen this; for others, it’s a reminder-invitation!)

Please come and celebrate with us!
When: Sunday, August 6, 4:00-6:30 PM
Where: Unitarian-Universalist Church, 5700 Grover, Austin
What: John and Anna going to Houston for four months so John can get a new bone marrow grown from his brother Peter’s stem cells!!

Please, please come! Let us give you a great big hug and lots of love, and help us celebrate this wonderful, scary opportunity for renewal and life! There will be music, prayer, food, and possibly even some wine—and most of all, you, the friends we love so much, who have given us so much love and support this past year.

And don’t forget! We’re still collecting letters and other messages for the “130 Letters” project! We want to gather 130 (or more!) letters, etc., from friends far and wide—at least one for each of the 130 days we’ll be in Houston. We’ll put your messages in 130 randomly numbered, brightly colored envelopes, and we’ll open one each day we’re in Houston. Anna will read your messages or poems or stories, recite your blessings, put your music on—whatever you’ve sent—and we’ll think of you and bring you into the room with us to make the day special and get us that much closer to coming home. Bring it in person if you can; send it if you can’t be here physically.

Diane’s gathering these for us. You can email her at:
or send them through the mails to:
Diane Colvard
405 E. 35th St.
Austin, TX 78705

Thanks so much! See you Sunday afternoon!
