Memorial Service: UPDATED
Updated: Jan 25
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2023, at 2:00 PM at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in Perrysburg with a reception to follow at the church.
St. Timothy's Episcopal Church
871 East Boundary St.,
As a side note, the church is not large, so there is somewhat limited seating. With that in mind, we wanted to ensure everyone knew that the service will be live-streamed by the local PBS station, WGTE, similar to Sue's memorial last year.
You can access the livestream via this link: http://www.wgte.org/memorial
The service will be live 30 minutes before the service. Please try to tune in by 1:45. A recording will be available for 90 days if you are unable to attend virtually or in person.
Pam and I (Andy) and the rest of the extended family certainly understand the complexities of travel these days and we want everyone to feel comfortable in their decision to travel or not, knowing that they can "attend" remotely and still be able to be a part of the service.
We also wanted to thank everyone for the kind words and remembrances that they have posted here and on other venues! It is almost impossible to acknowledge them all individually, but please know they have been read and appreciated.
