It's the last week of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Barren River Area Safe Space (BRASS) dedicated a tree in honor of Susan Dumore, who was murdered in 1992 as a result of domestic violence.
BRASS has a memorial garden with trees and plaques dedicated to area victims and their families.
It all began with the idea of a young girl who lived at the shelter with her mother.
"She came home from school one day with a Styrofoam cup with a marigold in it, and she wanted to plant it out in the courtyard behind the shelter. She made a little cardboard sign that said Sara's Garden, and said to me, this way, you'll never forget me," said BRASS Executive Director Lee Alcott.
Sara's one small flower is now a garden... in memory of all those lost as a result of domestic violence.
Alcott says the garden wouldn't be possible without the support of the community that has donated its funds and services to the organization.
