My Name is Gary T. Lambert, I am a self-taught artist. My drawing “Angelic” is a memorial piece for the late Caitlin Eggers. Caitlin was a good friend, co-worker and just a beautiful soul. As they say on the good die young though. This was the case with Caitlin, her light was extinguished by an over dose of heroin.
She was struggling with drug addiction but was on the road to recovery, but all it takes is one bad hit. Her beauty and spirit taken from the world. She meant so much to me. Always making me smile, even when I didn’t want too. Not a day goes by where I don’t think of her. I did not want her to be remembered as a loss to addiction, I wanted more for her. Even though I struggled for a long time to work on this piece, I pushed through for her sake. I am for once happy with the way the drawing turned out. I believe it captured her quite well. As I was coming close to finishing it, I thought I needed to share this. I needed to try to help others from their addiction or help prevent them from even starting. Therefore, all proceeds from the sale of these prints will go to the CASA Youth Ambassador SPARKS program, which shows kids that there are better things in the world to do rather than turn to substance use. Have a positive come out of this terrible and unnecessary death. May her beautiful legacy live on through this art piece.
I love and miss you Caitlin terribly, you will never be forgotten.

Everyone has a story and if you will allow me a few moments of your time I would like to share my story with you. My name is Donna Eggers and my friend Gary Lambert (a local artist) created a piece of artwork featuring my daughter Caitlin Michelle Eggers who passed away from an overdose of fentanyl.
Caitlin was introduced to heroin by her ex-boyfriend. My daughter was born on October 2nd, 1989 and passed away on April 5th, 2015, which was Easter Sunday, she was only 26 years old.
Gary was a good friend to Caitlin, and he approached me a couple of months ago about working with an organization in memory of Caitlin. Of course, I said I would love to be a part of helping to raise substance abuse awareness.
Caitlin had a love for teenagers. We would like to have her memory help keep the Sparks program going and to be a part of the solution not the problem.
A very wise person once said, “If you can make a difference in one life, that is better than none”.
Thank you so much for your time.
