Make a Joyful Noise
A Day of Celebration and Remembrance for Geraldine Riemer
Sunday May 20, 2012 Benner's Farm Setauket
Anytime between Noon and 6 pm
The family, friends, colleagues and former students of Geraldine Riemer were deeply saddened by her untimely death on March 21, 2012. Services for Gerry are being held privately up in her home state of Massachusetts. But Gerry's Long Island 'family' will be honoring her memory with a day of celebration and remembrance. We want this to be a happy, relaxed, warm, music-filled occasion shared with folks, including kids, from the many areas of her life.
Anyone who has a particular memory of Gerry, please send a short anecdote or paragraph about her so we can create a memory board. Photos of her would be appreciated too. They'll be presented in a laptop slideshow. Pictures and written pieces should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 5, 2012. Gerry's love of music was legendary. Perhaps you'd like to bring a musical note to the day by playing a song or two in her honor. Whatever your contribution, be it your presence, a picture or some music, it will help to make the day a true remembrance of our dear friend, Geraldine Riemer.
PS: An RSVP would be most helpful so we can properly plan for the day. Donations, in Gerry's memory, can also be made to Long Island Cares: Harry Chapin Food Bank. Contact info: (631) 751-1339 or email@example.com

Gerry's musical friends are scattered around the world, but for those who are on this side of the pond, I hope you can make it.
