Funeral Services and a Celebration

We’ve already started to share some of this information, but in order to ensure details reach those who are interested: a funeral service for Olivia will be held at 2:00PM this Friday, July 15, at the Church of the Transfiguration in Pittsford, NY. The address of our church is 50 W Bloomfield Rd., Pittsford, NY 14534.

After the service, we are inviting everyone to join us at Oak Hill Country Club (145 Kilbourn Rd., Rochester, NY 14618) between 3:30-5:30PM for a reception of sorts. There will be drinks, light food, and hopefully nice weather for us all to enjoy as we celebrate and appreciate the beauty of life in Olivia’s honor. We’ve reserved space that includes an indoor area as well as a connecting covered patio (the Oak Room Lounge and the Hill of Fame Patio). Everyone is welcome, and you should feel free to stop by for 5 minutes, or stay for the full two hours. Please note that Oak Hill has a no-jeans dress code.

Although Luke and I kept much of Olivia’s journey private to close family and friends, the funeral service and celebration of life/reception are open to anyone who is interested in attending. By no means should anyone feel obligated to attend, but please know that we’d be honored to have you join us, and feel free to pass along this information to our friends, extended family, and/or acquaintances where it feels appropriate.

In a similar light, we’ve removed the password from all prior posts. Now that Olivia has passed on, we feel it’s more appropriate to open up her whole story to anyone who stumbles upon it.

Information on Olivia’s services will make its way to print tomorrow (Wednesday) in the Rochester D&C, the Poughkeepsie Journal, and the Portland Press Herald.

Memorial donations may be made to the Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
