A line of candles on a concrete porch. A white teddy bear. Her face, shining through in photographs. Balloons, purple and silver, let loose into the night sky.
Her name filling the air.
“Long live Honestie, my baby!”
“I love you monster!”
“We love you!”
Fourteen year old Honestie Hodges passed away Sunday, from complications of COVID-19. Friends and family held a vigil Monday night.
And Hodges, now departed, carried her city’s grief one more time.
