Dear list mates,
Fellow list mate PAUL REID (pianist for Cornet Chop Suey) asked me to post
this information to the list regarding the passing of Darlene Brown; she was
killed in a car crash on Memorial Day (May 28).
Some of you knew her as a board member for the San Diego jazz club.
Darlene was also Paul Reid's first sweetheart since the passing of Paul's
wife, Virginia Reid, in Sept. 2005.
If you're in the San Diego area, maybe you can attend the memorial. If not,
then perhaps you might want to send a letter of sympathy and support to:
Paul Reid <whadayesay at webtv.net>
Paul's wife, Virginia, and then Darlene, were the best friends Paul had ever
shared his life with. You can imagine his grief. RIP Darlene.
Love and hugs,
FORWARD FROM PAUL REID

Friends and Family members,
We would like to invite you in a Celebration of Life for our beloved Mom:
Monday, June 18th, 2007 from Noon to 3pm at
Quails Botanical Gardens http://www.qbgardens.org/
230 Quail Gardens Drive
Encinitas, CA 92024
Note: Additional information on location of the memorial service and driving
directions can be found on the website (easy drive from the Leucadia exit
off the 5 Fwy)
Service Noon-1:15pm at the Walled Garden
Lunch 1:15pm - 3pm at the Gazebo
Dress should be as you see fit with the following in mind :
We can't predict the weather and it's an outside event. We were there on
Sunday and it was fine when the sun was out, and cool when it wasn't. We
will mostly be on grassy areas, so wear suitable shoes.
This is a celebration of a wonderful woman and keeping away from black or
funeral-type clothing is what we are hoping for. My Mom liked to dress up
with bright colors as you know, so keep that in mind. Any friends from the
Jazz or Red Hat Societies are fine to wear clothing in accordance with
their group's preference, if they desire to.
Below is the link information to our Mom's obituary and "in lieu of
flowers" information. We also invite you to visit my Mom's "guest book" (at
the link below) if you want to write a few words. (We encourage personal
rememberances if you are able to provide.)
Thanks for the tremendous support and love you have shown our families
throughout this tragedy.
WE ONLY HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF EMAIL ADDRESSES SO PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO
ANYONE THAT YOU KNOW WOULD WANT TO HAVE THIS
Mike, Dave, Rick and families
END OF FORWARD FROM PAUL REID
