It is with with sadness that I must share this news.
Our beautiful sister Jen Futrell aka Calico Future is dead.
She was killed while riding her bicycle, struck from behind , by a minivan.
Yesterday, March 4, was her birthday.
You may remember her from Vermont a few years back, or maybe you remember her
short, squat dog Aloe(wicious) . She also made that years blenderfest.
She came to Boston from Kentucky back in 04, for the DNC. She fell in with the
Peace kitchen, and joined with them on, the DNC2RNC walk to New York.
This year she manifested her own kitchen , the Down Home Hospitality Cafe, that
hospitality to the pnc2rnc protest bicycle ride, from Chicago to St. Paul.
Artist, activist, cook, and all sorts of other things that I know little about.
Becky and I saw her just a few weeks ago, at the RNC ,in St. Paul. She was
cooking, of course,
with the Seeds of Peace kitchen.
