Go to the Fun. concert

When Lola first posted #LolasBucketList, a few awesome people contacted me about getting her tickets to a Fun. concert. What they didn’t know is that what she meant was “live long enough to go to the Fun. concert that she got tickets for on her 16th birthday in May”. Tyler and I took care of that for her last night =) It was definitely bittersweet, and I had to choke back the tears, but we had a blast!

Please bear with me while we are still in the process of unpacking and such. I use my PC for graphic edits, etc. and it has yet to get setup — so I can’t “cross” stuff off of her list until I get my PC up and running.

Lola’s Final Resting Place

The “book” is Lola’s urn. Every single word/phrase on it embodies all that is Lola. A week before we left for George Mark Lola received a package from our friends in NYC that contained a hot pink/black outfit complete with a tutu, feather boa, beads and sunglasses. While she wasn’t able to wear the outfit, I used it all when I made this shadow box to protect her urn. I know without a doubt that she LOVES it.

Carve my name in a tree

The staff at Lola’s previous school (Edna Hill Middle School in Brentwood, CA) carved her name in the tree next to her friend Megan’s bench

Throw a drink in someone’s face

Thank you Cyndi and Connie ❤

As you can see, Lola never wanted to hurt a single soul but since it was on #LolasBucketList, she did it anyway (sorta =))!!!

More details on Lola’s Celebration of Life

More details about Lola’s Celebration of Life:

I am trying to get a “close” headcount on how many people will be coming. Can you please reply to this status or email Erin (mchugh_erin@msn.com) to let her know you will be attending.

For those of you who cannot make it AND in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Lola’s memory to one of her favorite organizations:

Stupid Cancer http://stupidcancer.org/
Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation http://www.nvchildrenscancer.org/
St. Baldrick’s Foundation http://www.stbaldricks.org/

Two last things — Purple is Lola’s favorite color and we’d love it if you could wear purple to her celebration. If you would like to say a few words about Lola (or even sing her a song), please let me know and I will set aside time during the celebration for everyone to do so.

Remember to check with Erin first about the potluck that what we are now calling ‪#‎EatingLikeLola‬. The list of her fav foods is in the original post about her celebration.
