A new low....

Recommended Posts

It's been a rough year......And this came as a major shock....

A good college buddy of mine was killed by a drunk driver early this morning..

Blew right through a red light and hit him at about 65mph...(the guy was majorly

speeding)

T-boned his Impy on the driver's side....he never had a chance...

He was on his way from spending the night visiting a buddy who was on leave...

I'm not even sure how to take this right now.

This is the THIRD friend I have lost to a drunk driver in 12 years.....

His birthday was in a few weeks...but instead I'm helping his parents with

the funeral (small family) doing whatever I can...

This is real hard......

:( I am sorry for your loss today ( as well as the others ) My prayers go out to you and his family.

And to the person who drove while drunk - let him be a lesson to us all of what not to do. And may he never EVER drive again.

I'm very sorry to learn about your friend's sudden death. Be there for his parents as much as you can, I'm sure they appreciate having you around in this time of need. You all will be in my prayers tonight.

Thanks guys, it's been quite a rough day.

Due to everything going on, I might be scarce for a few weeks.

I plan to do what I can to help his family out....this completely distroyed them...

I have to be strong...for them.

I'm still taking this all in...I'm still upset, but i don't think it's hit me yet....

I still can't believe this happened, again.

I know what it feels like, a good friend of mine from HS was murdered 2 weeks ago by a wacko neighbor. Leaves a wife and 2 kids- the son found his father in the driveway when he came home from school. Awful, shocking & so utterly senseless. I hope they can pull it together and move on.

Hang tough, dave.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Dave. I hope the legal system up there throws the book at this guy-hard. Best wishes to you and his family.

I am very sorry to hear about this Dave. Stay strong for yourself and your friend's family.

This is way I am so forceful about people being responsible driver's. Too many are hurt by drinking and driving as well as other irresponsible actions on the road.
