Memorial At Redskins Park Tonight

Postby skins#1fan » Tue Nov 27, 2007 10:13 am

My good friend who is on extreme skins is trying to get all the fans together tonight at Redskins Park in Ashburn to hold a memorial for Taylor. If you want to go be there around 6. A group of people went last night to pray also. Wear your jersey and bring some candles if you would like. This is tough for us all and if I had to be around anyone if would be real fans like u guys. Im going to try and make it and I hope you guys can to.

hey, does anyone have any idea how long it would take me to get to the park from silver spring, md? I get off @ 530 and with our rush our traffic I'd probably miss the whole vigil?

Yes, I have some friends who live in Silver Spring and I work about two minutes from Redskins Park so I know the route well, no chance you'd make it.
RIP Sean Taylor

Maybe we could show our support on a day when the team will be there. Today is a day off according to the league. I'm all for a vigil but maybe Friday would be a better night.

It would be nice if we could have memorials at Redskins Park and at Fed Ex for those of us in MD & DC.
After every game, every play & every highlight, I'll always remember #21. RIP Sean.

Hey guys, I just saw this in the Washington Post...

Redskins Memorials
From the Redskins:

The Washington Redskins are coordinating memorials for Sean Taylor at both Redskins Park and FedExField.

The #21 will be painted in a grass parking area on the right side of the road in front of the guardhouse leading into Redskins Park. In addition, #21 will also be painted on the plaza in front of the Redskins Hall of Fame store on the south side of FedExField. Both memorials should be finalized by early afternoon today.

Fans will be allowed to access these areas as a memorial to Sean Taylor and leave any tributes or flowers as they may choose.

Information regarding any planned memorial services or donations will be communicated when available.

Also, Jason Campbell is in the building but I do not know if he will be speaking to the media or now. Also, I heard that Daniel Snyder and others are headed back from Miami to return to Redskins Park.

I went to Sean's memorial at FedEx Field last night and I had some pictures taken.

It was freezing there but that didn't stop me from paying my respects to a man who put himself on the line for our football team every week for the last three years but more importantly for his girlfriend and daughter on Monday morning.

I love this drawing. It was VERY, VERY well done.

Image

A family framed this photo of them supporting Sean by wearing his jersey.

Image

Even Cowboys fans paid their respects. On the right it says "You are on God's team now." I never thought I would live to experience the day that a Cowboys shirt put a smile on my face.

Image

Image

There were a lot of moving letters and cards there but this one hit me especially hard. It made me realize even more how much Sean affected the youth in this area. I became misty-eyed when I read that.

This is blurry but it's a picture of a fan with Sean at an autograph signing.

Thanks for sharing. I really wish I could pack my wife and four children into a car and drive the 500 miles to pay my respects.

Not a problem guys. I was contemplating whether to post these but I figured you all would like to see what is there.

I also fixed the pictures that weren't showing up.
