Video of the memorial service for Pierre today at Vanderbilt University’s Benton Chapel at 4 p.m. CT will be streamed live from the Vanderbilt Web site, www.vanderbilt.edu/news. A link to an archived copy of the video, as well as photos, will be posted here tomorrow.

In memory of Pierre and his sister Marie, Anthropology students, colleagues and the Colas family gathered last weekend to make OFRENDAS, whimsical decorated boxes in the spirit of Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  These ofrendas will be present at the reception in Tillett Lounge (following the memorial service) where, as in Latin American tradition, food, drink, and music will honor those we have lost in gratitude and celebration of the gifts their lives brought into the world.
