We just got the answer to the source of the pink ribbons and gold stars throughout the neighborhood and it’s not as whimsical as we’d hoped. This from Mike Vietenhans:
Pink bows and gold stars tied around/hanging from light poles/trees along the streets to the west of the hardware store and Ken’s Market, hung there by Logan and Piper … to mark the route regularly walked by their uncle as he fought to beat the cancer that ultimately claimed his life earlier this week.
We’re so sorry to hear this. It’s a lovely tribute though. If you know Logan and Piper, consider following the route in their uncle’s memory.
