Through a member post over at the Georgia ADAPT (American Disabled for Attendant Programs Today) emailing list, many thanks to Cheri Mitchell for passing along that we have lost a dear friend, a very active disability advocacy family member, Mark Dyer..
Mark was one of those really active individuals you might not always see but would definitely hear of a lot if you spent any Time around the disABILITY LINK hub down there in Decatur.. I had the distinct honor of a fun, interesting, and educational exchange with him last year at (I think it was) the Georgia Independent Living Network's C.A.U.S.E. Best Practices Conference.. Earlier this very week, had just once again thought back on that moment as exemplary, as worthy of personal aspirations in my own self-advocacy efforts..
Dearest Mark.. Your inspirational activism will be missed by many..
Warm cyber hugs from the Hills of North Georgia..
