It’s a somber week as we mourn the loss of our Kelly Johnson — rAVe’s accountant extraordinaire but, first, and most importantly, a wife, a mother and just an all-around beautiful person. As you can see in our first story below, there’s a piece titled, simply, by her name. As Sara Abrons wrote regarding Kelly’s legacy and the darkness that is COVID-19, “I have to think that there’s a remote possibility that some good can come from such a tragedy, though, if only so I can feel like it’s not all so completely senseless. So maybe you’ve read this far and it will make you hesitate or do a little more research or think, hey … this really is still hurting people, people I know, and I can do things a little differently.” We hope you read the story and the message inside of it.
Today, a simple black ribbon with Kelly’s name digitally etched onto it is displayed on our website, locked at the bottom-left of the page no matter where you scroll — up, down, left, right. The locked ribbon symbolizes the belief that Kelly will forever be with us, unfortunately even though it’s only in spirit.
