I did not know Joan Ehrlich, the longtime director of Houston's Equal Employment Opportunity office who passed away last week, though when I go I hope as many people say as many nice things about me as they have about her. I do know that a lot of people with whom I'm acquainted knew her, so at the request of Doug Miller, I'm posting the following about a memorial service for her, so that if you were one of her friends you can know to attend:
Saturday, January 26, 2008, at six o'clock in the evening, at The Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas (www.rothkochapel.org). The Rothko Chapel is located on Sul Ross, adjacent to the St. Thomas University Campus in the Montrose Section of Houston. To help us accommodate everyone, please contact Katie Hoener of HendlerLaw at 512-439-3209 or email@example.com if you plan to attend, or for further information.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to one of the two organizations Joan Ehrlich cared a great deal about in recent years.
