    Default Wake/memorial service for Ginnie ( Lambada)

    My apologies to all who have been waiting for this information but processing the death of an Ex-Pat loved one in this country can be a little time consuming .................... AND frustrating.

    Thanks to some pretty nifty footwork by some really switched on friends last Saturday, I was not detained for questioning as to what, how, why & when when I visited the hospital to verify Ginnie's death etc. Dealing with Dominican Officialdom can be bad enough but if they then have to talk to OTHER Dominican Officialdom that in turn has to talk to British Officialdom & things take ..................... A WEE BIT LONGER!!

    The WHERE for the wake/memorial service WILL be taking place at OUR house. Those who do not know where this is can e-mail me for an address & map of how to get here.

    The DATE Wednesday July 14 at 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm

    (the short serious bit will be about 4.00PM)
    Short stories, reminiscences, experiences of SWMBO can be performed at will but please limit them to 3 minutes each

    (get here early for the best seats!!) seems to be the best choice but I need to have confirmation that the urn WILL BE here, first.

    PLEASE, this date is only offered here to help those expecting to come plan their movements for next week. We are arranging some buffet catering with non alcoholic drinks so please let me know if you are likely to come to assist catering requirement planning.

    (Oh .......... & thanks to all those who plugged the book in this thread. Copies for those not yet having read it WILL be available on the day ALL monies received (not just the profits) will go towards the Foundation we are going to set up in Ginnie's name).

    Hope to see 100s of you here next week!! ~ Grahame.

    I moved your post into a new thread and made it a sticky for now so it won't be missed.

    Grahame, this news hits like a ton of bricks, please accept our deepest condolences. I just heard about Ginnie's passing minutes ago and the first thing I did was come to dr1 to get the news. Can I suggest that now that Anna has made this sticky perhaps you post a brief obituary including exact date of memorial, etc. for those of becoming privy to this only now... Sincerely, Tim
