A piece accompanying a heart-wrenching real life story in Cincinnati Magazine. The owner of Cosmic Pizza owner Rich Evans was shot and killed in front of his wife and kids outside of their family restaurant. This threw the lives of his wife and children into chaos and despair. To make things more complicated, his wife Ao, a bride from Thailand, was incredibly dependent on him and barely spoke english.
The story focuses on how after the shooting, the community came together and raise the family back to their feet.
Now Ao Evan is supporting her family by running a small Thai restaurant. Check out The Evan Family FB page here.
