I'm wondering what the cross and flowers memorialize on Sixth Street right in front of Graystone Apartments? It would be across the street from the Westminster Inn I think. It's been there a while, and I was just wondering what that is in memory of.
The cross and flowers memorialize Matt Thompson, a Lawrence resident who was killed while riding his motorcycle on Sixth street last November. Thompson, who was 23 at the time of his death, was hit by a pickup truck. About a dozen of Thompson's friends and family gathered at the site on Christmas Eve to hold a candlelight vigil.
