Ribbons and stars are a memorial to late uncle

November 15th, 2008 · No Comments

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.
