Service & Potluck Feast
J.D. Falk's Memorial Service was held in San Francisco, CA
Saturday, December 3, 2011
If you need to get in touch with the event planners (e.g., for lost
items), please contact us at email@example.com.
To honor J.D. both at his memorial service and also in a more ongoing way:
- please don't send flowers or similar types of memorial
things. J.D. was really specific in his desire to have an ecologically
low-impact memorial. in particular, he was cremated at a crematorium
with high ecological standards. we also did not decorate the memorial
location with flowers, beautiful though they are.
- if you'd like to donate to an organization dedicated specifically
to cancer treatment and support of cancer patients, the following are
especially worthy of your attention:
- Cops Fighting Cancer:
J.D. especially liked this organization because it helps cancer
patients and their families in a very tangible, 'on-the-ground'
way. if you find another organization that works in similar ways,
please donate to that organization if you prefer to.
- MD Anderson Cancer Center:
J.D. and Hope value this organization both for their contributions to
advanced cancer research and because they help patients without health
- if you'd like to donate to an organization involved in something else J.D. valued, consider donating to:
- KGNU: http://kgnu.org/ht/support.html
KGNU is the independent community radio station that both J.D. and Hope
worked at in Colorado. J.D. enjoyed being on the air there very much.
- SomaFM: http://somafm.com/support/
many of you are likely familiar with SomaFM, a community-supported
online radio station. Hope and J.D. have spent many hours being calmed
and pleased by the music of SomaFM in the past difficult months, and
supporting SomaFM would be a great way to remember J.D.
