Magness Lake, in Heber Springs, is a magnet for swans
I really do not know what to say but here goes. Last night my BELOVED HUSBAND OF ALMOST 41 YEARS, had a heart attack and died. I will post more later today.
As most of you know co-founder of Conway Pride, Robert Loyd, passed away last night at his home, the well-known Pink House, of a heart attack. This is such sad news to all who knew this dear person. I do not think Bobby could ever understand the great impact his life and strength had on others. Bobby will be dressed in a fabulous outfit and will be cremated. There will also be a memorial service with more details on this to come soon. His loving husband of 40 years, John Schenck, thanks everyone for such an outpouring of kind words, thoughts and prayers. This year's Conway Pride will for certain be dedicated to Bobby's life and courage. If you would like to send something to the pink house, please feel free.
Loyd and Schneck were at the Pulaski County Courthouse last year when dozens of same-sex couples were legally married in the wake of Piazza's decision. They said then that they wanted to wait until they could get a license in Faulkner County, where they've lived for nearly 30 years. Their salon, painted bright pink and with the words "Teach Tolerance" over the door, has long been one of the state's most visible symbols for LGBT rights. They've organized the Gay Pride Parade in Conway since 2004.
The city has not always been welcoming.
“From that first parade when they spread manure, where they showed how bigoted and small they can be ― now that will never happen again,” Schenck said. “Like Robert said, I hope this is a day I will remember on my death bed.”
DBI, he could work very hard for that $20 and still wouldn't be able to…
