Dear Family and Friends,

My mother’s brother took his own life when I was 4 years old. He was 28. It was a tragedy that shaped my mother’s life and impacted our family’s life. The narrative we were told growing up was that Uncle Irv died of a brain disease. My parents were too ashamed to say he had mental illness and killed himself.

Rick’s grandfather took his own life. Rick didn’t find out the truth until he was an older adult.

I’ve been on the board of Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services for many years and am in awe of the work the organization does.

Please support us on the 5k walk/run for Suicide Prevention by joining us September 29. It's an inspiring Sunday morning. If you can’t be with us, please donate. Every dollar helps.

With love,
Laura and Rick
