Carol, Breeze, and Bonsai in the upper Susitna River Valley

Carol, Breeze, and Bonsai in the upper Susitna River Valley

Please join Carol’s friends and family on Saturday, February 6, at 3 PM AST (7 PM EST) for Remembering Carol Kleckner: A Virtual Celebration of Life. This will be a pandemic-friendly chance for anyone who knew Carol to get together and share stories about her and how her life touched you. How did you get to know Carol? Did she help a dog find you? Did you have a fun adventure together? Did she inspire you to join a music jam? 

We’ll have an invocation, have a few invited speakers talk briefly about Carol, then will open it up to anyone who wants to share a story. We’ll try to limit time to three minutes, to give as many people as possible a chance to share.

We’ll start at 3 PM and go until we run out of stories or two hours, whichever comes first.

We have no idea how many people will show up, but the limit on Zoom is 300. If you are interested in sharing a story about Carol, please use Zoom. If we reach capacity, please keep trying. To sign up for the Zoom meeting and receive the meeting link, go to the Remembering Carol Kleckner: A Virtual Celebration of Life signup page.

Or, if you want to listen but not tell a story, please connect with Facebook Live, which has no limit, on the Remembering Carol Kleckner Facebook page. (Supposedly you don’t need a Facebook account to watch it there; we’ll see.) No pre-registration is necessary for this option.

If you can’t attend, or are too shy to speak, we’d still love to hear your story! We may read it during the memorial, time permitting, and will post some of the best ones on Carol’s blog. You can submit your story here

Note: The event will use Zoom to let people tell stories. Please be sure that you have Zoom installed and working on your computer or phone well ahead of time, and that you’re in a place that has enough Internet bandwidth for you to participate. You can also listen in by phone. Zoom has a comprehensive Help Center that can assist you, as well as a Test Zoom page you can practice with. We won’t be able to do much technical support to help you during the event.

We look forward to celebrating Carol’s life with you!
