Today would have been the 20th Birthday for Larisa Karassik of New City.
She was tragically killed by a Drunk Driver on Memorial Day weekend in 2015. Her mother, Anastasia, created the Larisa Karassik Foundation to speak about the impact of drunk driving and to keep her legacy alive.
Below is a post from Anastasia Karassik:
Larisa would have turned 20 years old. Unfortunately, we do not have a cake or gift for her because she is no longer with us .
A drunk and drugged driver made a horrible decision to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while being under the influence of alcohol and drugs. He took Larisa’s young innocent life in a fatal car crash on 5-23-15. Don’t drink and drive!
Anastasia shares her story called “Losing Larisa and is available to be a guest speaker. She can reached at [email protected]
Happy Heavenly Birthday, Larisa. We will always remember your legacy. #larisastrong
