The unofficial Darrent Williams shrine at 11th and Speer not only survived the most recent snowstorm, but it's grown. Mourners who marched from the Shelter, the club at 1037 Broadway where Williams was partying on New Year's Eve, to the site of the shooting left more flowers, more cards, more poems, more crosses (including one painted Bronco orange) and more candles.
The last flame flickered out around 6 p.m. Sunday, but the city will leave the shrine up until it poses a public hazard -- or some fan of eBay, where number 27 jerseys are now selling for $175 each, realizes the value of those collectibles. -- Patricia Calhoun
