Gilly's House was established in memory of Steven Gillmeister, who passed away from a heroin overdose on October 24, 2016 at the age of 25. Barbara Gillmeister and her husband David turned the grief of losing their son (Steven “Gilly” Gillmeister) into a living legacy honoring his life. Gilly’s House is a safe, supportive and structured environment for those young men who want to change their lives and be able to successfully join life back in the community.
We grieve for those who have lost their family members and loved ones to addiction, and we know that help for those in need is scarce and the medical system and caregivers are overtaxed by the magnitude of the crisis.
We will photograph this fundraiser in the memory of a groom, David Briggs, whose wedding with Anya Briggs we photographed several years ago. David was a veteran, loving husband, and dedicated father of two beautiful girls when he lost his battle with addiction. Here is a phtoograph from David and Anya’s wedding day.
