Savanna Gonzales and Frankie Spenia III, Las Vegas, NV 02/05/14

Me and my family are in a time of despair. We lost our baby Savanna Gonzales and her boyfriend Frank Spenia III to a drunk driver who Hit them by crossing over to the other side of the highway killing them both on impact. Savanna was everything to us and she was only 20 years old. I am truly in pain, and I never thought this could happen. I need to know that she is in heaven with her father who passed as well when she was 6. I need to know that I will see her again. I feel like everything has been ripped out from inside me. To my mom Savanna was her world. They lived together and Savanna and my mom were best friends. My mom who is only 48 has been on dialysis 3 times a week now for almost a year for kidney failure ( and she only has one kidney). To have to endure this kind of pain on top of that just kills me. This freak accident happened at 4pm. She had just picked up Frankie from work and they were heading home to my moms for dinner. Out of nowhere this 51 year old drunk driver crossed the median and took two young beautiful souls in an instant. My life is forever changed, and well it's just not fair. I was supposed to see my sister grow up and be the best aunt that she was to my sons, and to hopefully see her have her own family one day. I know I will see her again.

In Remembrance , Lost but never forgotten
by: Justin Crisp

You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. I cannot imagine the heartache and sadness you have and continue to endure. I lost my father ,62, to cancer 2 weeks ago and I too am faced with the question of afterlife and heaven.

The pain comes and goes but I now focus on a virtuous life to honor my father and those loved ones I have lost. I encourage you to keep your sister and her boyfriend memory alive and to honor their memory by being the best you can be and to live a good life.

Always know you are not alone, although you may feel desperate and numb, please focus on life and the good in your life.

Bless You,

loss of your loved one
by: monique williams

Im truly sorry for your loss. very devastating and could've been avoided if the bastard didn't drink and drive. I lost my brother to a drunk aug 20, 2009. I can truly relate and empathize. Grieving a loss is very difficult and my thoughts/prayers are with you. take care

I am so sorry for what happened to you and your family. My first husband was killed by a drunk driver in 1994, so I know the pain you are feeling over losing your loved one.The pain will ease through the years, but it will never go away. So, remember the good times you had with her until you see her again one day. My prayers are with you & your family.
