Arthur Hale Sparkman, Providence, R.I. May 9, 1974

My father was crossing the street in Providence, Rhode Island when he was struck by a drunken driver. The drunken driver was a repeat offender...this was his second victim. My father's body was thrown into the air from impact and he died in the street. My younger brother had died of cancer in 1972 and my mother of Hodgkins Disease 10 months later. The loss of yet another nuclear family member was devastating.
