So in case you hadn’t quite figured it out, My Dad’s Wake is this weekend. It’s being held at the Koronoberg Faire site, in Corona, and it’s off season so they’ve graciously allowed us to use it! Many heartfelt thanks to all who have made this possible. You know who you are and if I started to name names I would miss someone and I do not want to take that chance.

Please visit the QME Facebook Page for more info.

I just wanted to let everyone know that, as far as the Family is concerned, this is a “come as you are” event. The Family will not be “dressing up” … we won’t be wearing Ren. Faire clothes, YOU can if you want, but My Father was Sooooo much more than just Ren. Faire and we are celebrating his WHOLE LIFE, not just one aspect of it. He Surfed, he Raced Motocross, he was a Master Brick Mason, an Artist a Writer and so much more that we just want to make EVERYONE feel comfortable that wants to come and celebrate and mourn with us. So please, feel free to dress as you please. It WILL get cold as the night comes so be prepared!

Finally, I’d like to share this thought… My Dad loved a Banquet, actually my Dad WAS a Banquet… Come one, come all, plenty for everyone! Also, as Ferghus MacRoi, he was King of the Banquet! Our hope is that we can all gather together and eat and drink and reminisce and have one more Feast in honor of the man we all Loved. There will be a loose schedule of events. Dad was not much for structured ceremonies and formalism and such, he liked to just play things by ear. If for some reason you think you “know” how these things should go… FORGET ABOUT IT. We’re just gonna raise a glass or two… say a word or two… and get our hankies wet with tears of sorrow and laughter! So if you feel a need to light a flame or some such thing it best be Sterno to keep the food warm! The King of the Feast would expect nothing less…
