An annual day of remembrance honoring members of The University of Texas at Austin community who died in the previous year.
Friday, May 7, 2010
UT Remembers began in 1998 when the UT Cares Committee developed a program to honor members of the university community-students and current and retired faculty and staff-who died in the prior year. On the last day of the spring semester, families, friends, colleagues and co-workers gather to remember those who died, to reflect upon who they were, what they gave to the institution and what they meant to the people whose lives they touched.
"At times of loss, our association as a community serves as a source of comfort. Over the last year, we have suffered the deaths of 167 members of the university family. This Friday, May 7, at the UT Remembers Memorial Service, each person's name will be read, and a Tower bell will toll in tribute. Names of those who will be remembered are available at http://www.utexas.edu/events/utremembers/..."
Aaron, you are remembered...
