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.



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.”
