Today there was a true celebration of Jack LaLanne’s life. Many consider him to be the king of all things fitness. He was lifting barbells just hours before he passed and was laid to rest with the same weight he was holding in his left hand when he died, his son, Dan LaLanne said.
What struck me most about his celebration of life was the fabulous floral display that was in the shape of a barbell, that was placed under a large photo of LaLanne in his trademark jumpsuit, with one of the dogs that appeared with him on his show.
While the family requested “In lieu of flowers, donations be made in his memory to the Jack and Janet LaLanne Scholarship Fund, c/o Hollywood High School”, the floral display with the barbells to me was perfect.
I believe if you’re going to send flowers make them personal and relevant to the person who passed, something tells me Jack is smiling from above looking at the barbell floral arrangement.
