Invitation Accepted and Visit Completed III

Apropos our work Imperfect City / Imperfect State for the exhibition imPERFECT City, we received the following email on June 2nd, 2013 from Carol:

Hello Jeanne & John,

Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit the roadside memorial at 2277 Delaware 72 (Purgatory Swamp Rd). The anonymous memorial has been maintained with new flowers on the sign. I took a picture with my cell phone and posted it on the ImPerfect City Facebook page.

Thanks!

Carol

On Facebook Carol wrote, “Made my pilgrimage to the roadside memorial on Purgatory Swamp Red [sic] in Glasgow today.  It has new flowers & decorations now…”  Indeed the flowers are new:

When we were photographing this memorial, a woman stopped and asked if we needed assistance.  John spoke to her, saying, “No, thanks though.  I’m  just taking a few photographs.”  She then said, “Oh,” pausing.  “I’m so sorry for your loss.  Can I give you a hug?”  John looked at her, briefly worried, and then just said, “Yes.”
