Today marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Bastard Nation Founding Foundling Gavirela Person aka Amy Lynne Akins. Gavi was an artist, designer, philosopher, spiritual guide, and Bastard visionary. A Jill of all trades and a master of all. Among her many accomplishments is her design of BN’s spermie logo.
A wonderful memorial to Gavi appears in today’s Lizard Chronicles.
Gavi’s memory has also been kept at Gavriela Maxime Ze’eva Person Memorial Page maintained by Denise Castalucci.
Another memorial is Charles Filius’s Gavi Remembered,with messages to her from Bastard Nationals
the world’s ways for all of us.
Know we were loved by at least one silent heart.
Be strong and love each other, and the world will surely change.

I did not know Garvi, but she was too young to die. May she rest in peace. Would you like to add her tot he Adoption Kinship Memorial Wall at TwiceLost.org?
I invite visitors to the wall and submissions of loved ones separated by adoption.
