Rally for the missing

I would like to thank the North Carolina-based CUE Center for Missing Persons for coming to Kansas City to hold a rally Sunday at the J.C. Nichols Fountain near the Country Club Plaza. About 200 people gathered to remember Summer Shipp, Sam and Lindsey Porter, Shirley McKeown and Jody Ledkins. Other missing persons remembered were Loy Evitts, Crystal Kipper, Joan Butler, Theresa Brown, Christine Rusch and many others whose names we couldn’t recall.

To have a loved one suddenly disappear leaves a hurt that just goes on and on. It was nice to take a moment, gather together and remember our lost love ones. And thanks to Alvin Brooks, who was there to minister to the group.
