An Ellicott City resident since 1986, Mrs. Ohanian had been a pharmacy technician at Howard County General Hospital since 1993.

He recently uploaded a throwback of his little self and his then younger mother on Instagram in an emotional post.

'#TBT to that Ridgewood, Queens life with Mom. Love those 80s vibes. I reflected on this last decade without her for an @initialized piece called Zero Lives Remaining'.
