Remembrance for Mr Bill

Sat August 31 at 6:30 PM, Finn Hall
712 Main St, Houston, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
Our very own Mr Bill has passed away. In the past on such an occasion we've met together to remember our friend, grieve together, celebrate their and our lives.
A long weekend is coming up. I'm throwing that out there as one possibility, but I'd really rather not wait too long after that. Once we have an idea on how many people, we can make more concrete reservations.

I picked Finn Hall downtown. Being downtown it should be central for people from all over town, and the food and drink there should accommodate any dietary restrictions. The area upstairs (Swallow's Nest) tends to be the last to fill up. It's also at the confluence of the Red, Green, and Purple Metro lines, for anyone who doesn't want to drive.

(I am far away and will not join you, but bless you for organizing this. He would have loved to be there, I am sure.)

I can’t put a trip on my agenda, but I will be there in spirit. I dunno if anyone has talked to the masons, but they may have a thing going too, or perhaps might offer the hall as a meeting place. Has anyone heard burial information? His mom passed away recently, and I don’t know how a funeral is managed if a family member isn’t directing it.

Thank you putting this together, Runes! I didn't know him but I feel sure that he would appreciate it.
