This morning I stopped by the house in the South Park neighborhood where Teresa Butz lived. I sketched the impromptu memorial with flowers, cards and teddy bears left in her honor. She was killed here on Sunday when an attacker broke in at three in the morning and stabbed her and her partner, who is recovering from the injuries. I’ve never felt as sad doing a sketch. My thoughts and prayers are with Teresa’s partner, family and friends.
A candlelight vigil is set for 7.30 p.m. this evening at South Park Community Center. Here are the details about the vigil posted at Blogging Georgetown:
Join friends, community members and others on Thursday night so we can grieve together and celebrate Teresa’s life. South Park Community Center has graciously volunteered their space and coordination efforts. If you would like to say a few words, there will be opportunity to do so.
