Zoom link for all sessions: 
Please help keep the number of attendees present on zoom at any one time manageable for the mourners.  Zoom thumbnail and gallery views can accommodate between 8 and 25 participants at any time. But the more participants on at the same time can make it difficult for the host(s) (i.e. the mourners) to see and interact with those on the call.  
You may also offer condolences by phone: (917) 216-8610
