A moment of silence
I was going to reserve today for Memorial Day post about veterans. However, today I need to post about another member of our family tragically taken away from us this morning. Felicia Melton-Smyth was someone that I have known for 8 years, since I moved to Madison. I knew her as someone that was a prominent figure in the fight against AIDS. I had a chance to get to know her on the Walk, Roll & Stroll for the Aids Network in 2006 because we did the walk as Team Shamrock, and again during the Act Ride last year.
Today when I got home from doing my everyday things, I found out that Felicia was murdered while vacationing Mexico this morning. This is a loss for our community, her friends and those that cared for her. In the wake of such news I feel that silence is best. I found some of my favorite pictures to post today. They show Felicia as I saw her, a fun loving, and dedicated person. RIP Felicia, may we pick up the pieces and carry on your legacy.
Pillow fight to benefit the Aids Network, Felicia was a Ring Girl
