  • Betsy says:

    Every time I look at this and other lists of those who died my heart aches. I am grateful that the Homeless Remembrance Project group cares and remembers.

  • tammy dietrich says:

    My son said he was homeless.. in a hospital, a place he went for help. .. missed by so many.. his many surround me still as we heal from His castrophy. This tragedy goes deeper than any know. Most fear to imagine. Others have no words. I’m homeless now too. 9/4/91-10/12/16 Skyler Velez
