Wall Of Broken Hearts Re-Dedicated In Everett

Broken hearts are the theme of the DUI Victim’s Memorial Wall.

In a short ceremony Friday afternoon, families of those who had been killed by the actions of an impaired driver in Snohomish County listened as 142 names were read aloud. Those names are engraved on the DUI Victims Memorial Wall which was re-dedicated on the Snohomish County Campus in downtown Everett. The wall incorporates a “broken heart” theme to represent what those who chose to drive impaired did to the families of victims. There is also a plaque to remember Lynnwood Police Officer Mark Brinkman who passed away earlier this year after 35 years in law enforcement. Brinkman had been a leading advocate against impaired driving not only in Lynnwood but throughout Snohomish County and Washington State. Here are a few photos from Friday’s dedication. If you’d like to visit the memorial it is located in the Snohomish County Courthouse Plaza at 3000 Rockefeller Avenue in downtown Everett, Washington.

The names of 142 DUI victims were read aloud.

A plaque also honors Lynnwood PD Officer Mark Brinkman.
