Jodi and I wrote an obituary. It will be in our local paper in a few days, but I know some of you will want the information regarding the service. Here it is:
On the morning of February 5, 2013, the world lost a brilliant light when three-year-old Caemon Patrick Marston-Simmons lost his battle with leukemia. Caemon was a beloved son, a grandson, nephew, and cousin; he was a chef, a nurse, a musician, and dancer; he was a wise soul, a teacher, and a healer of hearts.
Those who knew him and loved him are heartbroken: his moms, Jodi Simmons and Timaree Marston, his grandparents Patrick and Janet Streight and Kevin Marston, his great-grandmother Evelyn Williamson, his cousins, aunties, uncles, and friends. We are all humbled by his courage and inspired by his love.
Services will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Santa Rosa on Saturday, February 16th at noon. All who loved him are welcome.
For those who are thinking about bringing children, we encourage you to do so if you are comfortable. We will involve children in the beginning of the service, and then they will be welcome to either stay in the service or to play in the daycare area or courtyard. (We plan to have a few people to help with childcare.)
