San Francisco Memorial: November 11, 2007

Friends of Lance in San Francisco gathered at the Hemlock Tavern from 6 PM - midnight in the music room.

Austin Memorial: November 18, 2007

The Austin Memorial tooko place from 4–8 PM on Sunday, November 18, at The Mohawk, 912 Red River.

Both memorials were loving events packed with people missing and remembering Lance. Many great Lance stories were told, laughs shared, tears cried. Old friends, new friends, family, co-workers, and fans all came together to celebrate Lance. The events were beautiful, sad, wonderful gatherings ... testaments to the amazing human being that was Lance Hahn. We hope he would've had a blast at them.
