"235 homeless people who have died in Orange County will be remembered at these 2018 memorial services"

Original story from the OC Register

June 27, 2019

"A onetime ’60s soul singer who counted Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers among her admirers.

A family of four, including a 9-month-old baby, that slept at night in a van.

The brother of a state assemblywoman who had struggled with alcoholism most of his adult life.

Betty Jane Willis, the Kanyavong family and Raymond William Jaso are names that strangers came to know in 2018.

The stories about the lives and deaths of these homeless people generated news coverage as their family and friends publicly mourned personal losses. But they are among more than 200 homeless people who lost their lives on the streets of Orange County this past year."
