In Lieu of Flowers...

We invite all guests to consider bringing a donation for the firefighters burn institute. 

Of all the things Biff did in his life, serving as a firefighter for over a decade was one of the things he was most proud of.

Every year he contributed to the firefighters burn institute’s boot drive.

biff’s family would love to honor him by giving a monetary donation to this charity.

we will have a boot at both the stroll and lunch to receive donations.

Memorial Stroll

Our stroll through Sutter-Jensen Park will be on a smooth and comfortable concrete pathway. While it does have a decline, it is very gradual and we will walk at a very slow pace. The pathway is stroller, scooter, and wheelchair friendly. Please dress casual in very warm clothes. In the event of rain, please bring an umbrella; we recommend rain boots if you wish to enjoy the botanical garden.

Children are welcome, please try to keep a quiet atmosphere during the stroll.

There is a portable bathroom at the gravel parking lot where we meet and another at the end of the walk near the botanical garden.
