University of Miami Alumni Plans
Jason, driving home from the TV studio, asked me to post this for him. It's from the University of Miami's alumni group:
Dear Alumni Community,
The University of Miami Alumni Association is deeply saddened by the loss of alumnus Sean Taylor. As many of you already know, Sean was the victim of a tragic act of violence in his home earlier this week. He was a safety on the Hurricanes football team from 2001 to 2003 and became a star player with the Washington Redskins. Sean was beloved by countless 'Canes, colleagues, and fans throughout the community and across the nation.
We have received numerous email inquires about activities being held in his honor. Please find below the latest information regarding memorial services for Sean.
-- Friday, the UM Student Government had students sign a banner in the University Center Breezeway that will be given to the Taylor family.
--There will be a public viewing from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday at the Second Baptist Church, 11111 Pinkston Drive in Richmond Heights.
-- A candlelight vigil on Sunday at 6 p.m. at the University of Miami outside the BankUnited Center, following the UM men's basketball game.
-- At Sunday's men's basketball game and football banquet and awards ceremony, a moment of silence will be observed in Sean's memory.
-- Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Monday at the Pharmed Arena at Florida International University's University Park campus, 11200 SW Eighth Street. It is open to the public. Services will be followed by a burial at Caballero Rivero, 11655 SW 117th Avenue. We ask all members of the alumni family to wear orange and green in honor of Sean.
--The University appreciates your concern for the Taylor family and we will all continue to keep his family and friends in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
