We would appreciate an RSVP if you plan to attend so we can have an idea of how many will attend. Use

We welcome all of Federico's friends but may not have contact information for some. Please circulate this invitation to anyone who might like to come.

Stephen Goodfellow remembers:
For those of you who didn't know him, Federico was an Anarchist who fought against Franco's fascists during the Spanish Civil War. I knew him as a dear man with a moral compass that never veered away from a strong sense of right and justice. I shall miss him.

If anyone wishes to contribute memories, pictures of Federico, please post here.
