First of all, thank you to everyone for the phone calls, email, Facebook messages, cookies, cold cuts, text messages and other outpourings of love from all.

My brother and sister are doing well and have been surrounded by their friends. Lexi is out now shopping for a dress for the funeral, which makes me sad to think about, but I am so amazed at how well she is holding up and how strong she has been.

These are the confirmed plans:

Thursday will be a viewing/visitation at Struve & Laporte, 41 W. San Luis St., Salinas, 93908 at 7:00pm-9:00pm

Friday at 11am will be a gravesite service/burial at the cemetery in Gonzales. Here is a map. All are welcome
This is where Jake's mother is buried. Mom was extremely fond of Helen and would be proud to be by her side. Mom has no other family from the area so she will be the first to be buried on the West coast.

Friday at 1pm will be a very casual church service and reception at Shoreline Church, at 2500 Garden Rd. Monterey, 93940

We look forward to hearing and sharing stories of mom and how she's touched so many lives.

We are asking that in lieu of flowers donations be made in mom's name to the cancer related fund of your choosing or Hospice of Monterey.

This info is now confirmed

Hi, I am Julie...I am so sorry for your loss....I just found out from our SVMH update from Ms Kern.

I'm gonna miss your Mom....she and I sat in the 'look good feel better class' right after our surgeries. Little did I know at that time that we'd both been diagnosed withing 2 weeks of each other; your Mom had helped me with my time off work at svmh. I last saw her before Christmas and you were all planning time together.
I am happy she was pain free but so sad to know she is no longer physically close. I will miss her.
My prayers are with you all and what a wonderful site you have here, keeping us all connected. Thankyou♥
