In response to Dr. Hycel B. Taylor’s compassionate and challenging remarks at the funeral of David Branch,  his mother, Cathy “Pepsi” Key, and the grieving and concerned mothers and fathers in the Evanston community have asked him to consult on ways to stop the violence – “especially the loss of our precious sons.” The organizing group says, “We mourn with Ms. Merlins Lyons on the loss of her son Peter Lyons. We are asking mothers, fathers, and concerned friends to join us in this community effort to “save our sons’.”

The meeting will be held on Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Joseph E. Hill Administration Building, 1500 McDaniel Ave. For more information email momsos@hotmail.com .
