A Bend woman is making something good come out of a personal tragedy. Anissa Perkins wants to start a memorial in Bend that would honor the victims of violent death; such as war, murder or suicide. Perkins watched her husband shoot himself to death while she and her children watched. “Donating my yard for anyone who has ever experienced a loss. To put up a Christmas Tree in honor of the person that they lost. And to decorate it especially for them. And to form a networking group that is there year-round. But we will celebrate our memorial on Christmas Eve with a lighting.” Anissa Perkins says there is no memorial that specifically addresses victims and survivors of violent death. She is looking for donations to help make this dream a reality, and is hopeful that once the memorial is established another entity like the City can take over the project. For now, the memorial is proposed to be located in Perkin’s backyard which is across the street from Farewell Bend Park in Bend.
