In the past few months I've catered a handful of funeral receptions and memorials. Surprisingly they have been the most uplifting events gigs I've had. I think death is so mysterious and foreboding that if pushes people closer together with increased appreciation. The one job that stands out in my mind is the Hastings memorial.
Three siblings were spread across the country. They had a brilliant idea, to rent a mansion via AirBnB in Chestnut Hill inviting 15 of their extended family to stay for the weekend to celebrate the life of their father.
