Many Friends Gathered to Celebrate David’s Life

Family and friends shared beautiful stories, music, and food while looking out at the forest in Bowen Park on April 27.  Special thanks to everyone who helped with food, set up, and clean up.  So many people helped to make it a very special day.  Sometimes people get left out when specific thanks are made; please forgive any omissions made at the time of this post.

Thank you to:

David’s sister, Mary Snyder, for offering the unprogrammed Quaker-style celebration which encouraged all to participate as equals.
