MY NAME IS PAULA ANN LINDSEY, I AM THE MOTHER ---. I HAD TWO AMAZING YOUNG MEN FOR SONS AND LOSEING THEM JUST ABOUT KILLED ME. IT JUST ABOUT KILLED THE WHOLE FAMILY. I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE I NEED TO BEGIN---MY HEART ACHES FOR THEM---IT HURTS EVERYDAY. JEREMY WAS 22 YEARS OLD AND ALAN WAS 16. THEY LEFT BEHIND A BEAUTIFUL SISTER, ASHLEY WAS ALANS TWIN. SHE STRUGGLES EVERYDAY TO GO ON WITHOUT THEM. MY STORY IS HEARTBREAKING AND DRINKING AND DRIVEING KILLS--THATS THE BOTTOM LINE--- I HAD TWO WONDERFUL YOUNG MEN FOR SONS. THEY WERE SO FULL OF LIFE, HAD SO MANY GOOD FRIENDS. IM PROUD TO SAY THAT THEY BOTH HAVE FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT NAMED THERE KIDS AFTER THEM. THEY WAS SO SPECIAL TO SO MANY PEOPLE, SOME OF THEM EVEN HAVE TATOOS ON THEM IN MEMORY OF MY SONS. JEREMYS NICKNAME WAS GOMU--- HIS FRIENDS COVERED THE HALLWAY OF THE HOSPITAL DAY AND NIGHT FOR 4 DAYS AFTER HIS WRECK. THEY WERE SOME THAT NEVER LEFT HIS SIDE AT ALL, JUST LIKE ME, I NEVER LEFT MY SONS SIDE. I WAS SO HOPEING HE WOULD MAKE IT THROUGH, BUT GOD HAD A BIGGER PLAN FOR MY SWEET BABY. HE WAS MY FIRST BORN SON.. JEREMY WRECKED ON THE 2ND DAY OF OCTOBER ON A COLD WINDY NIGHT. IT WAS AROUND 5;55 PM IN THE EVENING AND HE AND HIS LADY FRIEND NAME JESSE WAS ON THERE WAY TO HER BIRTHDAY PARTY. THEY WAS DRINKING, LAUGHING, HAVING A JOLLY GOOD TIME WHEN WRECK OCCURED. JEREMY--GOMU--WAS DRIVEING TO FAST AND HE LOST CONTROL OF HIS Z-71 IN A CURVE, FLIPPING THREE TIMES BEFORE LANDING AGAINST A TREE. MY SON WAS EJECTED OUT OF THE VEHICLE WHERE HE SUFFERED SEVERE BRAIN DAMAGE, HE LOST HIS RIGHT EYE AND DURING HIS FOUR DAY STRUGGLE TO LIVE, MY BABY SUFFERED SEVERAL STROKES. JEREMY--GOMU--DIED OCT 6TH, 2004. WE BURIED OUR SON ONE MONTH AFTER HIS 22ND BIRTHDAY. I WAS STILL GREIVEING WHEN I GOT THE CALL ABOUT MY SECOND SON. ALAN WAS RIDEING WITH ONE OF JEREMYS--GOMU--FRIENDS. HE WAS DRINKING AND DRIVEING WITH MY 16 YEAR OLD IN THE VEHICLE WITH HIM. THE WRECK OCCURED AROUND 1200 AM . THE DRIVER CAME AROUND A SHARP CURVE AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED AND LOST CONTROL OF HIS PICKUP. IT FLIPPED SEVERAL TIMES ALSO AND PARTIALLY LANDED ON MY 16 YEAR OLDS YOUNG BODY WHICH CAUSED MY SON TO HAVE INTERNAL BLEEDING. HE HAD BLUNT FORCE TRAMA AND DIED SHORTLY AFTER MAKING IT TO HOSPITAL. I NEVER HAD THE CHANCE TO SAY GOODBYE.. AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT HURTS SO BAD. ARE YOU LISTENING??? DRINKING AND DRIVEING KILLS, DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE A CHOICE. PLEASE SAVE A LIFE, DONT TAKE A LIFE. PLEASE DONT DRINK AND DRIVE. I PRAY EVERY PERSON WHO READS THIS, SHARES IT. I MISS MY TWO SONS SO MUCH. ITS NEVER BEEN THE SAME WITHOUT THEM. IN THERE HONOR I WOULD LIKE YOU TO MAKE A PROMISE TO YOURSELF, YOUR MOM OR DAD OR YOUR WIFE OR HUSBAND TO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE. BEFORE I CLOSE THIS MESSAGE, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL OF MY SONS FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOR ALWAYS REMEMBERING THEM. I ALSO WANT TO SAY GOD HAD A PLAN AND PART OF HIS PLAN WAS FOR ME TO BE WRITEING THIS RIGHT NOW TO REACH YOU, YES YOU ABOUT DRINKING AND DRIVEING. I LOST TWO SONS IN TWO DIFFERENT YET ALCOHOL RELATED WRECKS. ITS A PAIN THAT NEVER GOES AWAY. GOD BLESS YOU FOR READING AND PLEASE SHARE THIS STORY TODAY. THANK YOU!!!!
