My boyfriend Chet and his older brother were on their way to work in Gonzales, Tx. I woke up at 5:36am August 25, 2012 to wish him a good day at work and to becarful. Our conversation ended at 5:50am and it turns out that morning about 6:20am a drunk driver had hit him and his brother head on and Chet was killed on impact! His brother survived with a fracuered pelvis. But that lady, 50 years old of age had an alcohol percentage of .266% and she had cocaine in her system! This is her 4th DWI and the 2nd time she has broken her probation of 5 years. I am so upset because this could have been prevented! I don't understand how a woman who has more than 3 DWI's is not in jail! Even now she is not in jail! She took a very precious life from me, his family and friends. Chet was very well loved and appreciated by many, he touched the lives of people he met! I will always remember him in may different ways and will never forget all the things he has done, always so full of life. He was always caring about others and helped as well. Chet was 18 years old, he had just graduated from San Marcos High School and he had his CNA certificate, Varsity HS Tennis player and, was on his 2nd day of his new job. I don't know when enough is enough for these people who constantly continue to make bad desitions... and i don't know what possibly can be done to stop all of this.
