My sister

by Brandi Busby

I lost my sister to a drunk driver in 1979, she was 16 years old and I was only 6 but remember her so well. She was on the back of a motorcycle with her boyfriend when they were hit by a drunk driver. She was killed instantly and her boyfriend and drunk driver survived. The drunk driver was 21 years old and ended up only serving 6 months of a 3 year prison term. When he got out he filed bankruptcy.

For years I have wondered about this man, if it changed his life or not....come to find out, I now work with his daughter-n-law. He won't talk to me or even mention it.

He took my sister from me!

Sorry for your loss

It is hard to tell what some one who is involved with killing another person must feel? I would think it is the guilt which keeps him from talking about it? But every situation is different and the best thing to do is what your doing sharing your story and keeping your soul with your sister, within you.

When I lost my best friend and fiancee I felt her presence with me as I still do but the pain will all ways be there. Don't let it harm you good memories and special times, they will forever live within your souls.

Please do what you can to inform people that driving while drinking anything can hurt so many, let them know about this site and read these post. I think it would make many think harder about it. I am doing that also it helps knowing at lest you can do something in the memory of the ones we lost.

Again I'M sorry for your loss.
