Family members of people who have died from drug overdoses or other narcotic-related tragedy and some recovering addicts came together Thursday night to pay tribute to those who have lost their battles with addiction. During a candlelight vigil at a community center in West Tampa, a 15-foot long wall was lined with picture after picture of people who have died in Hillsborough County alone. Michele Phillips
