Audrey Albright doesn’t mind at all that motorists are slowing down and gawking at her front lawn in Lombard these days.
It’s become a temporary graveyard of Styrofoam headstones that represent the death toll of drug overdoses.
About 100 Americans die every day from OD’s.
The traveling tombstones have been making the rounds of various community events and private suburban homes.
They make a stop at Albright’s house because her son, Michael Savastano died of a heroin overdose in 2012.
“Stop Overdose Illinois” made the gravestones in an effort to educate the public about the dangers of opiates and prescription narcotics, which cause the majority of overdoses.
