In Memory of a Young Coney Island Resident

In Memory of Tyllar Smith
A young Coney Island resident
January 20, 1992 - May 21, 2008  

This past Saturday, Rachel Carson High School of Coastal Studies, in association with Tyllar Smith’s family, and The American Federation of Suicide Prevention, did “A Walk for Suicide Prevention.” They met on the boardwalk of Coney Island, right outside the Brooklyn Aquarium and raised money for the cause. Afterwards, they had a huge bbq at Leon S. Kaiser Park on Neptune and Bayview Avenue in Coney Island.

Tyllar Smith's cousins display her image and
their loving sentiments on their tee-shirts.

Tyllar's Uncle served as dj at the afterparty and he
was not messing around with this sound system.

Flatbush Pigeon offers her deepest condolences to the Smith family at this most difficult time. You are all in my thoughts.
