Steps of Change - Salem, Ohio - 2015
In May of 2015, Tyler Bornstein's family, along with some of Tyler Westbury's family,
attended the Steps of Change event in Salem, Ohio.  We took this opportunity to walk in
honor of Tyler and all of those who lost their lives to addiction.  We listened to various speakers
who came to the event to try to educate families about the disease of addiction.  Taylor and Amanda
had the opportunity to speak about their brothers and the trials that came along with addiction
for the whole family. Tyler's favorite lime green shoes were given to honor him during the
memorial presentation.  We were saddened to see the vast number of shoes that lined the
football field.  There were tears, there were hugs, and there was a spirit of determination
as we walked for those who no longer could.
