If the capacity of 800 people is reached, we will need to limit access to the event space. In order to accommodate everyone who would like to participate in the celebration, we have additional viewing options available.
Monitors will be set up in the hallways for attendees in the building who are not able to get into the event space.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
