the Monahan family would like to invite you to celebrate Kay’s life on May 5, at Seattle’s Golden Gardens Bathhouse.
Kay was a Healing Center Advisory Board Member and huge supporter! Generous and thoughtful, Kay has been championing this organization since it was just a dream. In fact, her family gave the money for us to incorporate in 2000. Kay truly believed in The Healing Center and gave so much of herself to our clients, staff, board and volunteers. She was such a great cheerleader for our cause.
Please read the invitation below for details and how to RSVP to the Monahan Family. You can also find the details at Kay’s CaringBridge Journal webpage. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/kaymonahan/journal
Dear Friends and Family of Kay Monahan ~
We are planning a gathering – a celebration of Kay’s life –
a Kay-lebration…on May 5th (Cinco de Kayo) 2012.
We have reserved the Golden Gardens Bathhouse – Kay enjoyed being out there at the beach this past year – a nature hit when she couldn’t venture out of the city. The hope is that this Seattle location will allow many folks to easily gather – it is a very informal “wear your play clothes” kind of place.
One of Kay’s favorite jokes was:
What time do you go to the dentist?…
2:30 (tooth hurty)”…
so we will gather together to Celebrate Kay –
2:30PM @ The Golden Gardens Bathhouse.
Friends and family will have stories and memories to share. The Beaconettes, a singing group that Kay loved to be a part of, will be there. There will be music and laughter… and, of course, tissue boxes on the tables because we miss her so much! Folks who want to, could stay on to play at the beach and share in a potluck/cookout. The Golden Gardens Bathhouse is a fine old building that will shelter us from the elements and give us a gathering space. We have also reserved the volleyball courts on the seaside of the Bathhouse, and a cooking shelter (with charcoal grills) for the day.
Please RSVP to Teresa – firstname.lastname@example.org – to let us know if it looks like you will be there. Please include the number of folks in your group, and give us an idea of whether you will want to stay and play and share in a potluck/cookout later in the day. Kids are welcome, of course. Maybe there will even be s’mores and a hootenanny around a bonfire for folks who spend the day? I’ll be back in touch with those who have RSVP’d once we have a feel for the size of the gathering.
We hope to see you there- and will certainly feel you there in spirit should you not be able to join us. In any event, we will be celebrating Kay the rest of our lives – she was a good girl.
