“We need to have that safe space and community to support those that have lost someone or have known of someone that has passed. Because right now it feels like people have gone through it, but they don’t feel safe to talk about it.” - Luz Maria Vargas, a Chicago volunteer, in Block Club Chicago

"Losing my mom was the hardest thing..., we can't bring our loved ones back, but we can make sure their memory lasts forever or lives on," Melissa Harriman on NewsCenterMaine
