Event description
Please join us in celebrating the life of our dear friend Francis M Gritzmacher.

About this event

After Francis passed in February of 2020, we were not able to come together to mourn and celebrate our dear friend, cherished brother, and all around great guy. With the pandemic hitting Western New York not three weeks later, any hopes of healing and closure were diminished.

With the vaccine being widely available to the adult population, we now invite you to come together to remember Francis among friends and family on the second anniversary of his death. However, the risk of COVID spread and infection is still high. We ask that all attendees please be fully vaccinated and wear masks per current NYS health and safety guidelines.*

One of Francis' most often repeated wishes was for all of his friends and family to have a piece of him after he was gone. He frequently mentioned he wanted attendees at his memorial to take his ashes home with them, and to be honored in a way that would be personally meaningful between himself and the recipient. We will have small vials available for attendees to take home, if they so choose. Please indicate at the check out page if you would like to help fulfill this wish. We just ask that you please store or spread the ashes with respect and dignity.

We are looking forward to hosting you all, and begin our healing and grieving journey. Light food and beverages will be provided. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about this memorial.

*All attendees will need proof of COVID-19 vaccination and must be at least two weeks past receiving their first dose of the J&J vaccine or the second dose of Pfizer/Moderna. Exceptions will only be given to those with a medical condition preventing vaccination. Additionally masks will be required for ALL attendees per NYS health and safety guidelines.

Organizers will be in touch via email to all registered attendees with any important information as the date nears. Questions can be sent to franksmemorial226@gmail.com.
