Call for Contributions: Mourning Lost Loved Ones
Did you or someone you know lose someone in an Illinois prison? Did your lover, best friend, daughter, son, mother, father, cousin, tia/tio die while in prison or outside? We want to hear your story. The Illinois Deaths in Custody Project would like publish your memories online. Remember and honor your lost loved ones with a eulogy to celebrate and recall their lives. A eulogy can be a poem, a story, a word of praise, a memory, a prayer, a letter to or about that person, a card, a photo, a drawing, a newspaper clipping, something of theirs, or just a sentence you want to dedicate to a person you knew who passed a way while in an Illinois prison, or outside (while you were inside). Please include the person’s legal name, nicknames, the name of prison or other location where the person died, and their birthday and date of death. Please add return address if you’d like a copy. Preferred length 1-2 pages, handwritten submissions are fine.
