A Remembrance For The Homeless Who Die

Listen Now

It’s Memorial Day. And we have a story for you about not forgetting. In this case, not forgetting people who live -- and die -- on the margins of society. Tomorrow, Pueblo will honor members of its homeless population who died in the last year. One Shoe Bob will remember the one he loved and lost - Felicia Lucero. One Shoe grew up in Pueblo and served in Vietnam. He makes his home under a bridge. To learn more about Pueblo’s Homeless Memorial Day, Ryan Warner spoke with Anne Stattelman. She directs Posada, a group that serves Pueblo’s homeless.
