Tragic Death of a Local Favorite


Sunday morning July 28th I found out that one of my favorite guys on the street was hit and killed.  I wept so hard and went to visit the site with flowers to pay my respects

I will miss his crystal brown eyes, gentle voice and little slur. RIP, sweetie

Over the last week, much public outcry has happened and many positive efforts to help.
