S.F. DLers, are you going to Heklina's memorial Tuesday night?

I'll be watching the livestream.

How did she die? Was it ever determined?

It's pronounced "Heck-lin-a".

R1 I looked but didn't find anything. Maybe they will say at the memorial.

How was it?

I went to the Memorial. It was an incredible evening, very moving and also hilarious at times. I'm not sure, but I expect the replay should be accessible somewhere since they did livestream it. The festivities started outside the Castro Theater around 6:30pm. Those of us with tickets started filtering into the theater at 7pm, and the event started a little after 8pm and went until around 11:30pm. Lots of great footage from way back in the day interspersed with fantastic performances and guest speakers. A memorable experience for sure!

Good article on the Memorial and the after party at the Oasis.

So politically correct. She should have gone by Hellina.

Here's another article. It's clear Heklina was well-loved by many, and not just locally in San Francisco.

[quote] She died in April. This is August. How long does it take to figure out cause of death?
