June 12 - Thursday 7 - 8:30PM
Dr. Vincent Muli Wa Kituku - Beyond the Clouds

This is a special treat, Peter and I have enjoyed Vincent's insights and wisdom about children and caregiver topics. Dr. Kituku is a native of Kenya, Africa - living in Eagle. In the use of folk tales and his life experiences, he delivers authentic, informative and touching messages. His own life has been touched many times by grief - in his writings, books, lectures and by way of his radio program he shares understanding and inspiration with others. "Buffaloes in our Lives" KBOI 670AM - 7am sat. mornings.

Alden Waggoner Funeral Chapel offers monthly support programs and lectures regarding topics on grief to bereaved community at no charge or obligation. I have attended a couple of these informative lectures and would like to encourage you and your family to attend as a topic fits your interest. 5400 Fairview Ave - Boise, Idaho, 376-5400. Our dear friends at Alden Waggoner fund the M.I.S.S. bracelet kindness project.
