National advocacy program for crime survivors comes to Orlando
Agnes Furey, who works with survivors of violent crime, knows what it’s like to get the proverbial telephone call.
She got hers in 1998, when authorities delivered the news that her 40-year-old daughter and 6-year-old grandson were killed in their Sarasota apartment.
“I can’t change what happened,” said Furey, 80, who lives in Tallahassee. “What I can do is change it going forward.”
