If you are unable to attend the memorial you can watch on the web on Ustream at this link:

Streaming will begin at 1:30. There will be a brief ad when you first log on but there shouldn’t be any additional interruptions.

To watch from a mobile device, you will need to download the Ustream app. Type “Ustream” into any of the app stores, it’s free. Do it well ahead of time. Then search for “jonathan glass memorial” and the link will pop up.

To avoid stalling out the broadcast, minimize the windows open on your computer when running Ustream

Childcare will be provided starting at 1:30 pm.  Debra Skinner, MFTI, and her team will be providing childcare for the event to allow the parents to grieve and celebrate in private if they would like their children to be there for the family but outside of the service. There will be a certified CPR person and seasoned childcare workers  to help make this experience as educational and interesting as Jonathan would have wanted it. Tables will be set up with art supplies, butcher paper, glue, and cut outs so that children can express their thoughts and feelings if they would like to, or they can draw and color or help younger children draw, color, or spell if they would like to write a message to the family. After the ceremony, parents are welcome to join the children during the reception to see the artwork and admire the children's works, or add some of  the parents own messages to Amie and Eden. Since the theme, the cutouts, and the magazines will be outdoor oriented, the children's work becomes a forest of community that can help the children to express some of the things that they may not yet understand or be able to verbalize.  Please contact [email protected] with any questions.


You can contribute to the Jonathan Glass Memorial Fund, a fund intended to support Amie and Eden.

You can also send a check made out to the Jonathan Glass Memorial Fund directly to the Exchange Bank, PO Box 403, Santa Rosa, CA 95402.
