To all of Jason Mabie's friends:
This is Jason's dad, Ken Mabie. Patti, Melissa, Kasey & I continue to be lifted by your kind words. We will have a service to celebrate Jason's life:
When: Sunday, August 18th
Time: 2:30 pm
Where: St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Sherman Oaks, CA.
We ask if you could kindly put the word out to the many different groups of friends he had; i.e. St. Jane's, Notre Dame HS, UC Men's Octet, Berkeley, musicians and many other friends.
We thank all of you for caring about Jason, being his friend and touching his life.
We love you all.
Also, Jason's memorial fund is only about half-funded, so if you would care to give, the link is below.
My friend, when she knew her time was coming to an end left a message to all of her friends and family: When you are finished crying, remember that we had fun fun fun...so, while part of me is still mourning the loss of my dear friend and mentor I do remember the great times we had together and the hope I have. So, I think I'm ready to carry on. Which is a good thing, because I am SO far behind in my classes.
So, my birthday overtook me earlier this week. With the memorial, I almost forgot that it was coming up... Those are the times when I think "seriously. senior moment? already?" The birthday was pretty quiet, and I didn't get what I really (when it came down to brass tacks) wanted, which was an Octet cd. I'm such a subtle hinter that my hints seem to sneak past anyone with birthday present obligations.
So, this year I have decided to treat myself to the one thing I wanted for my birthday: the High Octane cd. Yeah. I emailed Keith, and he sent me the ordering information, so technically the ball is rolling. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Thanks for the support.
