Two Tributes to Reds

"The Wolman Pebble Count" will be an installation taking its shape from the streams that Reds loved. It will be built from stones provided by all of you who knew, admired, and loved Reds.  All those who attended the memorial were asked to bring a stone from a special stream or river to be used in building the stream/pathway. All those attending the memorial were also invited to take a specially marked pebble with them, to be thrown into their favorite river, a scattering of memories and wishes in honor of Reds.

Those unable to attend the memorial may send a pebble to:

Wolman Pebble Count
