News Maker Bill Long on tonight’s 11/2 vigil for Zander Ward

A community vigil will be held tonight at 6 in honor of Zander Ward at the Front Royal Gazebo.

We spoke to Zander’s uncle Bill Long about the memorial in our latest news maker segment in an attempt to bring awareness to depression and the alternatives that are available.

The good news is brought to you by the town of Front Royal.

Bill talks of the vigil and how suicide is not the answer with the help that’s available.

If you too suffer from depression please talk to a trusted family member, friend or mentor before contemplating doing anything drastic.
