An Empty Bench in Cozumel

An empty bench in CozumelThe memorial for Kirsty in Cozumel, Mexico is close to fruition, the intention is to have an unveiling ceremony on Friday, 28 July 2017.   This is the style of (heavy duty!) bench they propose to install, with a plaque.

It’s a companion bench for Kirsty’s original bench in Soho Square! The logo incorporates Kirsty’s bird drawing (well known from the Justice For Kirsty Campaign) and the Cozumel logo.  The latter already has a swallow included in it.  The caption will include a line from Kirsty’s song Mother’s Ruin . . .

“When you go, let me dream that I go with you”

. . . which was selected by Jean MacColl from suggestions by Kirsty’s fans.
