    • I kinda think that maybe she won’t because she may be tired from the trial, but you never know. Gary waited until the last minute to do this because I have been checking their website and no event was planned. They may have been waiting on the family for direction or to see if they had any requests. I tweeted Taj about it and he didn’t respond. I am glad that Gary is doing something, with or without the family because it would really be a shame if they didn’t.
