Kris was an amazingly compassionate and dynamic friend, neighbor, and community member. Her loss is truly devastating, but we can't get through it alone. Let's begin the healing together.
The candlelight vigil will begin starting from the BICAS’ parking lot located at 44 West Sixth Street and ending at the "Bike Church" near North Main Avenue and West Davis Street, according to the BICAS Facebook event page. The Whistle Stop has offered its warehouse for as a "solace space."
