1. Visitation and Memorial Service Schedule:

Unfortunately, we were unable to book Saturday January 11 as the Memorial Service date due to no available cremation time, so we have had to make a slight adjustment and move it to Sunday January 12.  I know many of you have booked flights and other arrangements so please take my deepest apologies for being unable to reserve on the dates that were previously stated.  Please see below for exact times and details of services:

2. Sending Flowers

I previously had stated that you could send flowers to our home or to the funeral, but we are preferring that you please send all flowers to the funeral home at the following information:
Attn: Ank Kim Vu

3.  Local hotels/AirBNB

I would recommend that travelers looking to stay some where more comfortable to utilize airbnb.  Which is a great website to find private rooms, condos or homes for rent for just a couple nights.  Here are some recommended places I have found to be available for next weekend

Here are some options i've already dug up:
Hyatt Place - $112/night
Caravelle Inn - $62/night + breakfast + free shuttle to airport
Garden Hotel - $72/night
 
Please let me know if you need more options.

4.  Donations

If you decide to contribute, we highly encourage you to do so with the Forbes Norris clinic in mind.  If there was an entity that came close to saving my mother, it was this clinic that helped us through all difficult aspects with her battle with ALS.  From beginning to the end of Kim Anh's battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), the Forbes Norris clinic has always worked to provide my mother with the top notch care and medical attention for free.  Whether it was physical therapy, counseling services, medical equipment/wheel chair rentals, and thorough medical care; Forbes Norris never failed to provide us with highest quality of care from a solely non-profit standpoint.  Our family would have been lost without them.  If you wish to donate on Kim Anh's behalf to this non-profit organization, please follow this link: Donate to Forbes Norris Clinic.  We consider them family and hope that others who are affected by ALS will find comfort in their help.

As always, i am available for to contact.

love,
Don

Hello again everyone,

I know that friends and family of Kim Anh reach far and wide so I wanted to send out an update as soon as possible since people coming from long distances will need to make arrangements.  After discussion within the family and brief talks with the funeral home, we have decided on dates to have the viewing and memorial service.  Since we have not yet completed all the necessary paperwork, the following information still has not been solidified and will follow shortly: times of the services, the room of the service, and the duration of the services. 

1.  Funeral home and Services information:

Funeral home nameOak Hill Funeral Home
Date of Viewing (Open Casket): Friday, January 10, 2013- time TBD
Date of Memorial Service and Cremation: Saturday January 11, 2013- time TBD
Additional information to soon follow: a) Times of the services, and b) the room within the Oak Hill site that the services will take place.

2.  Flying in to San Jose (SJC):

Grievance Fares:  Most airlines offer a lower "Grievance Fare" for those flying in need to attend a funeral.  Before you make an airline purchase to fly out to San Jose, please please please call around to shop for the best grievance fare.  Typically the airline will need to know that you are planning to attend a funeral and will need the following information: a) the name of the recently deceased, b) the name of the funeral home that you will be attending the service, c) the date of the service. After you have given them this information, you will need to send them a copy of record that you attended Kim Anh's funeral service at Oak Hill, which the funeral home WILL provide upon request on the date of the service.  I would love nothing more than to see you all there, but I don't want anyone to break their bank coming here.

Staying Overnight:  Please contact me if you do not have family or friends in the area to stay with.  Accommodating guests will be my top priority for all visiting family and friends; however, if space does indeed run out, then I will work with you to find a place nearby for reasonable prices.  Please contact me personally if you require assistance.  See below for all my personal contact information.

3.  Sending gifts in loving memory of Kim Anh:

Sending flowers: You may send flowers to our home or directly to the funeral home for the date of the service. 
         Home address: 1712 Indigo Oak Ln, San Jose CA 95121

Donating to Kim Anh's ALS clinic:  From beginning to the end of Kim Anh's battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), the Forbes Norris clinic has always worked to provide my mother with the top notch care and medical attention for free.  Whether it was physical therapy, counseling services, medical equipment/wheel chair rentals, and thorough medical care; Forbes Norris never failed to provide us with highest quality of care from a solely non-profit standpoint.  Our family would have been lost without them.  If you wish to donate on Kim Anh's behalf to this non-profit organization, please follow this link:Donate to Forbes Norris Clinic.

Contributing the after life services of Kim Anh:  Although we are not formally asking or requesting monetary donations for Kim Anh's after life services and needs, there have been requests for a way to accept money.  I would like to make clear that your attendance to the memorial service as a friend to Kim Anh, and the family, is what we value the most.  But for those who want to contribute financially, then the following options in order of preference are:
  a.) Cash/Check given to us after the Memorial Service on 1/11.
  b.) Check mailed to: 1712 Indigo Oak Ln, San Jose CA 95121
  c.) PayPal to this email will go straight to me
