Memorial for Kayla_la

Over the past few months since Dani passed away, I've been thinking about her a lot, and I really want to have some sort of a memorial for her. I was talking to some folks at BLFC about doing sonething at a con, where we have a place to share art to and from Dani, and talk about how much she meant to us and our community. I was thinking about doing this at FC as this is a con she went to and loved, but I wanted to solicit other thoughts and ideas from the ppl here. I was thinking if we did it at a con, we could get panel space and maybe put together a memorial for her with cards for all her loved ones to have as a keepsake. This is going to be a fairly invovled undertaking, so I invite help and advice, but I feel like I need to do this in order to get closure for myself. Thank y'all for taking the time to read and I look forward to your suggestions.

I forgot that LJ has a poll feature. So this way we can get a more structure way to get the sense sense of the scale of this undertaking.

I'm glad to see so many people so far are interested, and I like the pin idea. If we go about getting a memorial pin done, we'll need to crowdsource the manufacturing, but I am willing to donate a far amount of my own money to seeing this happen.

Thank you again for reading. Hopefully we can come together as a community in the memory of Dani and support suicide awareness and prevention outreach.
