In 2017, when we were planning our first Addiction Awareness Vigil, the Hope & Remembrance Wall was born. The idea was to remember and honor both those who died too soon, as well as those struggling who are now in long-term recovery.
Today, July 15, it’s been 5 years since my son Evan died of an overdose in New Haven. Ev brought such happy memories to our family, with his wit, humor and kindness to others. Our son was truly our Evan from Heaven!
I will also be remembering Evan during our 4th Annual Addiction Awareness Vigil on Wednesday, September 2nd at 7:30 PM. On that day, we will live-stream rather than meet in person.
Thanks to all of you who sent kind words my way today, and see you in September!
