I LOST MY DADDY TO DRUNK DRIVING :-(

(sulphur, oklahoma)

ON MAY 17, 2008 MY FATHER WAS KILLED BY A TEENAGE DRIVER THAT HAD BEEN DRINKING ON PROM NIGHT. HE WAS RIDING HIS HARLEY DAVIDSON AND GOT HIT HEAD ON. PUTTING MY FATHER IN THE GROUND WAS THE HARDEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE IN MY WHOLE LIFE. HE WASN'T ONLY A FATHER TO ME AND MY BROTHER AND SISTERS. HE WAS ALSO A GRANDPA, A HUSBAND, ANYONES BEST FRIEND, A SON TO HIS FATHER WHO IS STILL ALIVE, AND A BROTHER TO MANY SIBLINGS. I GO TO THE SAME SCHOOL AS THE TEENAGE STUDENT THAT KILLED MY DAD... ITS VERY HARD FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. ESPICALLY MY BROTHER BECAUSE HE HELD MY DAD WHILE HE DIED. MY BROTHER HAS NIGHTMARES EVERY NIGHT... DO EVERYONE A FAVOR AND DONT DRINK AND DRIVE...
LOVE ALWAYS A STRUGGLING TEEN :-(

So sorry.. tell others
by: Kim George

I am so so sorry for the loss of your Dad.

I lost my friend that was driving a Harley and he was hit by a man that was drunk.

All I can say is to not live in the Sorrow.

Tell everyone you know that does not know about your story. You never know what can happen because of that. You can make people think first if you reach out and tell. Keep saying "I lost my Daddy" that statement alone can opens doors.

May your life be richly blessed and rewarded in replacement for you loss.

Kim

I'm so sorry
by: Suzanne

I can understand your pain, my husband was killed by a drunk driver while he was riding his Harley as well...What bothers me, is that you say you go to the same school as the teenager that killed your Dad, Why isn't this teen in jail for what happen...They took the responisibliy of driving drunk that night, why aren't they taking responsiblity for killing your father..The person that killed my husband is on the Lamb, he couldn't handle going to jail, so he left the county...He was not a citizen of the United States and went back to his country after he bailed out...I couldn't even look at this person when he would come to court, he was so drunk the night he killed my husband, he had no idea, why he was in jail the next morning..I'm so sorry your in this situation at school it must be difficult...Almost impossible...I'm sorry for your lose and always know you Dad is with you every day...
