6: Remembering Jaja | Treasured
7: Jaja passed away on January 8, 2012. We had a memorial service a few weeks following. In the service, Chris and Mike both shared the impact Jaja had in their lives. The great-grandchildren carried up items to help remember some of the things Jaja loved. There was a reception following with friends and family. The next day we watched a wonderful video of pictures that Aunt Judy put together which chronicled Jaja's life. We all wore Jaja's hats. Mike sang us a song he wrote. Later we had a delicious meal of Jaja style hot dogs, coleslaw, and baked beans, a meal Jaja loved. It was an emotional time of remembering a much-loved man.
