Arlene's Funeral Service

This page has been put up as a central repository of information relating to funeral services for Arlene Wong, my mother, who passed away from complications due to cancer on December 26th, 2003. The navigation chrome to the left should disappear when this page is printed.

Note: These are the official instructions; they should not change any further.


We plan to have four main events. All four are open to the public; friends, family, friends of the family, and others are welcome to attend.


There will be three stops; instructions are provided below. Note that the actual routes from stop to stop are not likely to change; however, for those who come from afar, some instruction is better than none at all. Please note that these instructions have not yet been checked thoroughly, although I believe them to be correct.
