Hey All,

First, we want to thank everyone for their hard work and time. We are so
appreciative of all that has been done.
We are feeling a little(very) anxious about the cost of this memorial. Some
money has come in, but not enough to cover all that is happening.
  We loved Bruce very much and want a classy "good-bye", but we also need to
be able to enjoy it with out excessive worry. We have been so busy with
cleaning out Bruce's house that we didn't pay that much attention to the
memorial, cost wise. Now that the house is done, we are very concerned about
the cost of this event.  Being inexperienced at large venues and we are
hoping it is not too late to make some cost cuts.
We have some ideas, please let us know if it is too late to do them, or if
you have a solution that makes more sense. Thank you so much.

1. Can we cancel the cake? It doesn't make sense to me to pay for cakes and
cutting charge if they are not replacing some other food cost. I believe
this will cut about 200.00 dollars out.

2. Can we pass on the posters, or only make one? I remember us talking about
making one, four is going to cost alot more, esp. w/out a "friend" producing
them for us. I like the idea of one(that great smiling shot of Bruce
w/hat-no jacket).  Chey and I brought Bruce's artwork back from the city,
so, we have many pictures, etc.

3 Is it too late to change the Coconut grove menu? I like the idea of mixing
one or two Grove dishes with the brought in chicken. I would prefer to scrap
the appetizers altogether. People can feast/snack on chicken and veggies.

4 Do we have a final(ish) headcount? If so, can we drop production down to
250? It isn't much but it makes a difference on my end.

We am sorry if this hurts anyones feelings, or is in any way offensive. We
are touched by all that has been done.
See you tonight,
Jenny and Cheyenne
