Services for John, Sunday March 30th & informal Sitting Shivah

Hi all: Peter, Myles, Ledia, Mason, Wolf, Melissa, and I returned home to Austin at 7pm to a houseful of loving people to eat, cry and laugh with. More than a dozen angels from our dance group, having heard how traumatized I felt about walking into the house so infused with everything "John & Anna," had re-arranged furniture and wall art in the whole house to make it fresh and comfortable! Larkin Tom and Mason's friend Michael Cote brought food. Diane Colvard directed and brought Dillon! I curled up on the floor with Dillon and it seemed he was glad to see everyone.

We would like to continue this version of the Jewish tradition of "Sitting Shivah" from today through Saturday (March 26-29) 3:00-7:30pm each day. In Sitting Shivah, the mourners are comforted by friends' coming over and talking, eating, drinking, and having this special time together. You are invited to stop by 405 East 35th (near Duval) and sit with us. Joining our family today will be Ledia's husband Paul from San Francisco and my sister Patti from Albany.

Services will be held on Sunday, March 30th in Austin. Exact times and locations are still being finalized (to be announced later today) but we know it will be something like this:
Sunday, March 30th
Memorial service--early afternoon
Dinner & remembrances of John/Open mike 5-9pm-ish
Love, Anna
