When Tony LaGreca lost his son to the opioid epidemic in 2014, he made it his mission to be sure his son’s death was not in vain. Witnessing the power of grief groups through his many years as a facilitator, Tony decided to take to the airways. Every Thursday evening, he opens up the phone lines—and his heart— to others who have lost loved ones to this scourge. Tony’s tireless work has been nationally recognized and awarded, and his weekly hour on the air is treasured by his listeners.
Jennifer Lynn Kane was a beautiful young woman whose work as a certified public accountant took her to amazing heights. She was a devoted daughter and sister who traveled the world on business but always found time to visit her family.
She was a very close and loving daughter, family-oriented, sincere, gentle, and she touched everyone deeply.
Jen grew up in Plymouth, MA along with her two brothers, Matt and Tim. She attended Plymouth elementary and intermediate schools. Jen graduated from Thayer Academy in 1993 and went on to Villanova University. She earned a degree in accounting and graduated in 1997. Jen passed the CPA exam and went to work for Marsh McLennan on the 100thfloor of the World Trade Center. Most days, Jen could look out the windows of her north tower office and see Central Park stretching beyond midtown Manhattan’s skyline. Some days, the view would simply be lost in the clouds.
And then came September 11, 2001
The day our world changed –the most horrible and tragic event in history. Jennifer was a part of that history and will always be remembered as an American heroine.
