Hey Nanay11, we have a Promise Walk every June in San Jose... not sure if that is close enough to drive reasonably, but it's a great event. Let me know and I can put you in touch with the walk coordinator, Jennifer Smith. You can also find more information at http://www.promisewalk.org/sanjose
, although of course the event is concluded for 2013. But we will be back in full swing come January!
I am so sorry for your loss. We always have a special segment at each walk to memorialize our loved ones, and the San Jose event often does a dove release, which is really beautiful. I hope you will be able to join us.
