[ESIP-all] Details of Rob Raskins Memorial

Hello All,


I am a member of the group with Dr. Benedict at the Earth Data Analysis
Center, and I want to say "THANK YOU" to those of you who choose to donate
to JDRF.  My daughter, Arianna, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes just
before her third birthday.  She has been living with the complications of
diabetes for over ten years.  She is thirteen years old now, does
extremely well academically and is active in year-round completive sports.
Having said that, without the support of JDRF locally and the
breakthroughs in research and medical equipment on a national level, I am
certain her outcome would be much different.  I am sharing our family's
experience with the group, not to detract from the important message
regard the celebration of Rob's life, but to know that even in his death a
young life will be touched. 


Warm regards,


Shirley V. Baros, GISP

Hi Friends of Rob,


The details of the memorial have come together (finally). Its taken a
while to organize everything because Lisa, Robs sister, is not local and
lives in Washington state.


We will hold a celebration of life in honor of Rob:

March 24 at 10 am

The Unity Church of the Valley

2817 Montrose Ave, La Crescenta, CA 91214.


....We will try to set up a live video stream for the memorial. More
details late next week.


We will have a slide show of Robs life at the memorial. If you have some
pictures to contribute I have created a google account:
robert.g.raskin at gmail.com (upload to photo section).  Call or text for the
password. Or post to his FB wall.


Lisa has asked that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Juvenile
Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in his name.  You can use this link

form1> &2374.donation=form1


At some point Lisa intends to set up Scholarship Foundation in Robs names
where folks can also donate.  Stay tuned for that.



Thank you all for your support and prayers thru this difficult time.  See
you March 24.
