Bike Forum - Wall of Remembrance

I was thinking today about the cyclists who have been killed while riding their bikes, and that I have never seen a "Wall of Remembrance" for them.
I've decided to start this thread for those of us who have been touched in some way, by the death of a fellow rider while they have been riding, and would like to honour them.
Please do not turn this thread into a finger pointing discussion.
Please keep it as name, date, and location.

I would like to start the list:
Darren Smith: 17 November 1992, Pacific Highway, Beenleigh, Australia
Luke Harrop : 12 January 2002, Bermuda Street, Mermaid Waters, Australia.
Amy Gillett: 18 July 2005, Germany

I won't mention the name, because the Father might not approve. Father (front), 2 daughters, and mother (rear) were on a family bike-ride, early in the morning, when a drunk driver veered into the bike lane, and hit and killed one of the daughters.

I don't want to seem like I'm hyjacking the thread with something that could be seen as being politicised, but this page shows the sad state of the law in Britain and the casual way it treats the deaths of cyclists. It's sad, sad reading.
