Saddened Forever :( The pain just wont go away
My son was 21 years old,He was in for Thanksgiving weekend from Miami University. where he was studying to be a doctor .A Pre med student all he ever wanted to do was help others. He had a dream, He was to graduate in 6 months from his death, he went out to say goodbye to all his childhood friends, as he had a flight to catch that morning, they were traveling on Conklin ave in Farmingdale NY on Nov 30th of 08 on his way home from Applebees on rt 110 in Farmingdale where they went to have a farewell dinner. when a repeat drunk driver over the alcohol limit struck my car. He drove head on and killed my son. In the car were three other friends one who was badly hurt and needed emergency heart surgery from a torn aorta and broken hip fingers, elbow and trauma to his head. still not able to walk due to this horrible inexcusable crash and loss of feelings in his legs, the other two boys had jumped out of the car, when they saw the smoke. They were treated at the emergency room and released all 21 years old ,while waiting at the hospital for almost two hours we had no idea where my son was they just wouldnt tell us in fact, one of the EMTs was on the scene and he told us he was checking to see where my son was when in fact he already new, This has been the most heart wrenching pain, from the time we got the call from his friends mom that the boys were in a crash .i am begging for help and support to convict this killer!!! who had no reguard for his own life or yours. While Driving over 80 mph head on into my sons body and ending his young life he has put my family in horrific pain and an endless journey to live with, he was my only son whom i lived for. He was so loved and so smart and caring, he just didnt deserve to die, because someone decided to get wasted and drive his SUV, cross a double yellow line right into my sons car. He also had his car registered under another Persons name and refusing a blood alcohol test, and while on probation from 06. As for my son he did nothing wrong he just wanted to say goodbye to his friends,that night. before he left to go back to school all this has affected our family, his two sisters and our community,just because of someones stupidity. RIP my beautiful boy someday maybe the laws will be more strict, but till then we will never be safe on our roads. and i will have to live without my son . He just didnt deserve to die. Because you got Drunk! and drove your car!
