Hello. It has been a much needed week and a half away from here and communicating with you all. The outpouring of support and respect paid to Hal has been nothing short of breathtaking.
Dad’s cremation has been taken care of and he will be laid to sea on Friday June 8 from San Pedro. We willnotbe going or participating, but we are doing two memorial services for Dad.
The Las Vegas Memorial is Wed, June 13, 2012 at 3:00 PM at Temple Sinai 9001 Hillpointe Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89134. Dad met with the Rabbi while he was in hospice and shared information with him and gave some insight in to who he was and what he wanted shared at a memorial. Our family was there with him for the meeting, so the service should be lovely.
The Los Angeles Memorial is Friday, June 22, 2012 at 11:00am at the CMC (California Market Center), 110 E. 9th St. Lobbylevel Theater, Los Angeles, Ca 90079. Dad’s life was lived for the most part in LA and the Mart was his home base for more than 40 years. We are looking forward to seeing our family as well as friends and colleagues from all aspects of his life at this service.
Our family is asking that in lieu of flowers contributionsbe made to : Cedars Sinai Medical Center (CSMC)Fashion Industries Guild in memory of Hal Kaltman at www.fashionindustriesguild.orgl . Donation envelopes will be available at the memorial in Los Angeles.
We have several people scheduled to speak in honor of Hal, but there will be time at the end of each memorial for a few words.
We cannot thank you all enough for your care for our father, brother, uncle, grandfather, cousin, friend… our Hal.
