It’s been just over a year since Karey Riddell’s son, Wesley, made it his mission to light up the stately white building in downtown Cynthiana with blue lights.
His family was in the process of relocating to Cynthiana after living briefly in Frankfort. Karey and Noel Riddell made it their mission also.
And while Wesley, Karey and Noel were carrying the figurative blue torch, many other Cynthiana people joined the parade to bring awareness to autism.
Wesley was diagnosed with autism at a young age.
