I never had the pleasure of meeting JoJo Bird, but I've felt like I've known her since I snapped this picture July 6, 1996.
Thirteen days after JoJo died in the spot you see in the photo on the left, she turned 26. Today she would be 43 years old, probably a mother, and maybe even a grandmother. All of those possibilities ended October 29, 1994.
Someone wanted me to know about JoJo so they built this memorial, and I'm glad. For some reason I can see her twirling across a open room, her yellow full skirt swirling around her knees.
