Memorial Minyanfest in Honor of Bennet Sedacca
Click for details.
Greetings from the Sedacca household where Nan and the clan asked me to express their sincere gratitude for all the warm wishes. They've been reading the vibes on The Exchange as they truck through this trying time and, yes, it makes a difference.
I told them the genesis of Minyanville was seeded by the outpouring of love when Ruby was sick, the thousands of emails we read to him on his deathbed and the profound power of a community comprised of people you've never actually met. They too, will get a "book," one that compiles the many vibes sent in the last 24 hours and the many more that are sure to follow. Bennet would dig that - in fact, I'm fairly sure he's already smiling down.
A few thoughts from the front - and by the "front" I mean Nancy, Michael (wow, he looks a lot like his dad) and precious Katie, as well as Bennet's parents and the rest of his fabulous family. They asked if The Ruby Peck Foundation for Children's Education could serve as the beneficiary for those who would like to make a donation, and I responded that it would be an honor. We will be donating 100% of the funds raised through April to philanthropic endeavors consistent with the RP mission, and we'll work closely with the Sedacca clan in the distribution of those funds.
Also, we'll be hosting a Memorial Minyanfest in Orlando tomorrow (Thursday) at 5:00 p.m. for all ye area faithful. The venue is the Grand Bohemian Hotel, located at 325 South Orange Avenue (407-313-9000). The family will be there, as will the Minyanville community in force, so please feel free to swing by for hugs, handshakes and a glass of Pinot tipped in the direction of our fallen friend.
Thank you ever so much - for the support, for the empathy and for understanding the "important stuff" has nothing to do with a P&L. I'm planning on being back in the turret on Monday, but truth be told, I'll be here for as long as needed.
As always, I hope this finds you well.
