MY BROTHER WAS KILLED BY A DRUNK DRIVER JULY 17TH HIS 6TH BIRTHDAY WAS ON JULY 25TH
SO HE WAS KILLED 8 DAYS BEFORE HIS BIRTHDAY & BURRIED 2 DAYS BEFORE BIRTHDAY. MY SISTER CANDIE 9YRS OLD AT THE TIME LET HIM GO TO THE STORE TO GET ICE WITH HER. HE WAS SO EXCITED TO GO. HE KNEW MY MOM ALREADY SAID HE COULDNT GO AND CANDIE OF COURSE LOVES HER LITTLE BROTHER SO HE WENT ANY WAYS. THEY WERE STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER AT THE CROSS WALK TAFT HWY X WIBLE WHEN A DRUNK MAN GETTING OFF WORK GOING 60 MILES PER HOUR HITS FREDDIE BARLEY MISSING CANDIE AND MY BROTHER FLEW 90 FEET DOWN THE STREET LANDED BY A TELEPHONE POLE. THE DRUNK DRIVER GOT OUT OF HIS CAR TRIED TO PICK HIM UP AND WAS TELLING THE PEOPLE AT THE BARBER SHOP SORRY FOR KILLING YOUR DOG. HE WAS SO DRUNK HE COULD NOT TALE IF MY BROTHER WAS A DOG OR A LITTLE BOY. CRUSHED EVERY BONE IN HIS BODY,HIS NECK WAS DISLOCATED FROM THE BODY. STILL TO THIS DAY MY SISTER BLAMES HER SELF IF SHE WOULD HAVE MADE HIM STAY HOME. I KNOW SHE WAS JUST BEIONG A SISTER AND NOW DEALING WITH THE GUILT HER WHOLE LIFE. NOT ONLY WAS OUR BROTHER TAKEN BUT HER LIFE WAS RUINED BY THE GUILT. SO PLEASE DONT DRINK AND DRIVE IT HURTS WAY TO MUCH AND ITS NOT FAIR TO TAKE A LIFE.
