May 15, 2015:  A Message of Condolences from Pete & Kim Cogan

This week Pete and I learned about the sudden passing of Naomi Giannotto and Martin Newburger.
They were two beautiful souls from OBR’s Alumni that leave us feeling a void in our hearts and family.

Naomi, who has been in recovery, was taken from us due to a tragic car accident.  She was such a happy young lady who brought smiles to all who knew her.




Martin was a young shining star with so much hope for change and a positive future. His life was cut short, losing the fight against the powerful disease of addiction.


While we don’t forget why we are all here at Ocean Breeze, a tragedy such as Martin’s reminds us of why we stay focused on our mission to help and heal.

We’d like to extend our heartfelt condolences and prayers to the families, friends and loved ones of both Naomi and Martin during this time of sorrow.  Know that you are not alone and that if you ever need to talk, please don’t hesitate to reach out.


Love,  Pete & Kim Cogan
