Sunflower field opens for victims of Buffalo clinic shooting

[KSTP News, Fox 9 News, KARE 11 News, WCCO News, July 20, 2021] Months and seasons have passed since the February mass shooting at Allina Health Clinic in Buffalo. In February, a gunman opened fire at the clinic killing an employee and injuring four others.

"It's bittersweet to come back here. It's hard but it's kind of just what life has to be. You've got to move forward," said Donnie Overbay, Lindsay Overbay's husband.

Lindsay, a medical assistant, was killed during the shooting. After Lindsay's death, Donnie wanted to do something to honor his wife. Then Johnny Olson of Fish Sunflowers contacted him. For the past six years, Olson has been planting sunflower fields as a way to spread joy and give back. 

Fox 9 News, KARE 11 News and WCCO News also reported on this story.
