Memorial - UPDATE


Many of you know by now that my brother Sky courageously lost his battle to cancer last Sunday morning. He is living peacefully and pain free again and will be greatly missed.

Memorial services will be held on Jan 23, 2010 at the Lincoln Theater at the Vet's home in Yountville , CA from 11-3. THIS IS A SOBER EVENT. ANYONE showing up intoxicated WILL NOT be let in.

Here is a potluck sign-up sheet if you plan on attending. We have almost no heat source so unless you bring your dish in a crock pot or chafing dish with Sterno cans a cold/room temp dish may be best. I created spaces for 100 for each category but we will undoubted need more to sign up. Anything you can bring will be GREATLY appreciated. Serving utensils will not be provided so please bring your own and either mark them with your name or bring something disposable.

If all four sign up sheets don't show up on the first page you can click on "older posts" at the bottom and other sign-up sheets should show up. You may need to keep scrolling through. Place a comment on the bottom of the category with what you would like to bring and I'll add your name to the list above.

We have 960 sodas being donated by Pyramid Brewing Company (A HUGE thank you) but we may need more - doesn't include cola. We will also need bottles of water.

Also, the Sky Jackson Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo is now up. If you wish to contribute you can go into any Wells Fargo bank and donate funds into the Sky Jackson Memorial Fund. Any excess funds after service expenses will roll over into a trust for Zion and/or one of his cancer foundations. Thank you all for support.

I may update this post periodically so check back. I will try to say UPDATE in the title. Thank you all and if you have any question please feel free to email me at

UPDATE - For the plates and napkins we are going to do them themed. So if you would like to bring a package of plates/napkins just pick one out that reminds you of Sky, i.e. surfing, golf, fish, 49ers, A's, etc... I know Party City has 49er and A's ones online. Today I picked up some that look like bandanas. Just make sure you let me know that you got some and how many. Thanks!!!
