It is with a sad heart that, The Celebration of her life HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED DUE TO THE LOSS OF THE VENUE.. BARBIES CELEBRATION OF LIFE WILL BE RESCHEDUELD FOR ANOTHER DATE.
We are asking for people to bring their own lawn chairs and a dish for Sharing, if they can. Everyone is welcome, regardless of ability to contribute. We'll have mask, gloves and hand sanitizer available. There will be a tent, an indoor restroom, and a bonfire toward the evening. I'm also attempting to hire a Christian band to play (but no guarantees on that)
I also thought it would be meaningful if people could bring a pumpkin of any size and write on it what they most loved about Barbie.
Please RSVP to Tammi so she can have an idea on the amount to plan for.
Indiana Memorial is honored to be serving the Henry family.
