Judi Conrad Memorial

Celebration of Life of Judi Conrad This was held at the center on 15 January 2015, led by Dorothy Simpson and translations by Marielena, with over 60 people attending. There were vases of roses and other flowers including “everlasting”. Judi’s husband Kal and her younger son Kaleo both shared some memories,and said it was heart warming to hear how Judi’s efforts had helped the community and that she had realised her dream. Those who wished lit a candle and Marielena conducted an ancient Mexican ceremony to the six directions. Jorge played Cielito Lindo and all joined in with Hey Jude. Dorothy, Kal and Kaleo have expressed their wish to keep the building, to be known as the Conrad Center, open, and plans will be made known at the next Amigos meeting on 7 February.

    I was saddened to learn of Judi’s passing and blessed to have known her and her kind, loving spirit. I had the privilege of traveling to Bucerias from Connecticut and volunteering at the BBCC for one week per summer for three summers. I was amazed at the vibrant atmosphere and my life was enriched by the children, the staff and other volunteers, and of course by Judi herself. I sincerely hope that the Center remains open and that her spirit lives on forever in that true COMMUNITY setting.
