    I am trying to reach everyone that may wish to attend, so if I have missed someone, please do forward this on to them.

    Ken's Memorial Service time has been set to:

    1pm, Saturday, September 3, 2011 at
        Duggan's Serra Mortuary

        Daly City, CA 94014

    Directions can be found at (http://www.duggans-serra.com/facility.shtml).  They are very near the Daly City BART station.

     Instead of floral arrangements, a scholarship fund has been established at Golden Gate Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in his name.  Music played a big role in Ken's life, both as a child and as an adult. Please consider a donation.

    Dear Friends,

    As most of you know, Ken passed away last Thursday, peacefully, not in pain, with Ian and me by his side.  It is a sad time for us.  Ken touched the lives of many people, and I am asking folks to gather this coming Saturday, September 3rd, for a Memorial Service for Ken at Duggan's Serra Mortuary, 500 Westlake Ave, Daly City, CA 94014.  The time is not set exactly yet but it will be between 1pm and 3pm.  All are invited, but if you let me know in advance I can make sure we have the correct size room.

    Music played a large part in Ken's life, especially while he was growing up.  To honor his memory and to help other students who may be otherwise denied a musical education, we are asking that in lieu of flowers you send a donation in Ken's name to the Ken Cavanaugh Memorial Fund, Golden Gate Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, 3058 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94114. GGP is a non profit, 501(C)(3) organization.  You can read more about them on their website (http://www.ggph.org/about/).

    I want to thank everyone for all their condolences and prayers during this difficult transition time for Ian and me.
