In this Monday, Feb. 10, 2014 photo, Candy Murray Abbott, left, and Tammie Norris hold a sign made by Norris that shows a pair of angel's wings with the names of youths who have died from drug abuse in Hamilton, Ohio. The two mothers, who both have a child that is a recovering addict, formed a group called Heroin Control in Hamilton. "If you stood next to somebody and just started a conversation about heroin, you'd hear: 'Oh yeah, my nephew's on heroin. My next-door neighbor's on heroin. My daughter's on heroin,'" says Abbott, who helped her own 27-year-old son through withdrawal in summer 2013. (AP Photo/Al Behrman)
