Niilo Memorial Gathering webpage January 8, 2014 There is now a webpage dedicated to the memorial gathering for Niilo Jan. 5, 2014.
I would run into Niilo at conventions of the Democratic Socialists of America, and he was a strong supporter of our Religion and Socialism Commission. He was always warm and outgoing, personifying the ideals he championed. My condolences to the family. He left a wonderful legacy.
Thank you. It has been more than a month since the memorial and I continue to recall images and words from that afternoon… I appreciate being able to rely on more than my memory.
