I was apparently mistaken, and the “Mel Elward Celebration of Life” will be open to the public. It will take place on Saturday, May 7th, 2005 at 10:30am at Mesa Country Club. All are welcome and we hope to see you there.

Papa’s obituary ran in both the Tribune and the Arizona Republic and you can read the Tribune’s here. I think it’s beautiful and was written by my mother, my grandmother, and my uncle (if the link is dead, you can download it here).

For those of you who can’t make it to the Celebration of Life, you can download the pdf version of the programme here. I hope to eventually have the 20 minute photo tribute available for download as well.

Many of you I will see on Saturday. Those that I don’t, I hope you are well.
