Memorial Services for Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz

The Perrot Memorial Library in Old Greenwich, CT, announced plans for a memorial service for Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz in a message on the library’s blog yesterday,

The Staff and Board of Perrot Memorial Library deeply thank each of you who have shared a thought, shed a tear, and expressed your emotions and remembrances for our dear friends and beloved colleagues, Kathryn McClelland and Kathleen Krasniewicz. The response from the Greenwich community, the Connecticut Library and the American Library Association communities, the storytelling community and the publishing industry has been astonishing. We are planning a Celebration of Life Memorial Service in Old Greenwich in March at the Spring Equinox to honor Kate and Kathy’s memories. We will post more information on our website and blog as it becomes available.

The future is not ours to know, and it may never be —
So let us live and give our best and give it lavishly!

-An Irish Blessing
