Please Join Us This Evening for the Celebration of Barb Wold's Life
I am glad it is a somewhat slow news day for political blogging. I have final organizing for the memorial this evening. We have some great people attending and going to share their thoughts. One of Barb's favs Hakim Bellamy is going to be one of the guests providing a small tribute, just to mention one of our diverse community to speak. My niece Sarah, from Boston came in to town for Barb's memorial. It will be wonderful to have Sarah witness the love and support Barb and I have in our life.
I have had selfless help setting up this event from our good friend Peter Moulson, and from County Chairwoman Ana Canales, and the generous use of space from our local unions.
So today is the day. Some closure. I cry alot and I miss her greatly. But my life is continuing on. Please remember to support the blog here in Barb's memory. Donate here in lieu of flowers. Please.

Due to the outpouring of love and support for Barb and Mary Ellen, we decided to change the location to a slightly larger space. So that everyone can be comfortable, we will have plenty of seating and tables, plenty of standing and chatting room, and plenty of space to Celebrate Barb's life.
Food and beverages will be provided. And some words of remembrance will be started at around 6:00. Look forward to celebrating Barbara's life with you all. With love and peace - Thank you all.
Thinking of Barb, and you, from beautiful downtown Florida, and the fantastic fun and fury of the Deaniac era. Rock on!

I will be thinking of you from the edge of the West here in the Puget Sound region. You may see some hits show up in the stats from this area. I have been recommending this site as a model.
Barb was effective because she was able to apply a professional publications background to blog engineering. She will be missed, but she also left some pioneering work behind.

Good thoughts and gratitude always to our dear blog master. I wish I could have been there in person, but I will always be there in heart.

May she rest in peace. She provided a much needed service to New Mexicans.
