We spent this afternoon/evening calling and emailing all of our family, extended family, extended-extended family, people we treat as family, friends and former coworkers to let them know.
At the end of the day, there would easily be 200 people coming for the service, and, with many of them being elderly, we don’t want to put anyone in harms way. I have to believe that’s what he would have wanted too. He wouldn’t want anyone he loves running the chance of getting sick from travelling to his service.
We’re talking about maybe hosting one later in the year… maybe in August around when his birthday would have been (if things calm down by then). But for now, it’s the right decision to not have one.
