Remembering “Little O”

Background: The genesis of this story began on the evening of Saturday, May 17th while on my way to cover the Ashland Community Theater’s debut presentation at the Ashland Middle School.

Then, I noticed something in the ground, a marker of some sort beneath a flowering crabapple tree. I stepped toward it, and realized it was a memorial carved in granite. I felt a sadness because the girl had died when she was no more than 23.
