    I generally like to keep my private life private but, for my son, his fiance' and my granddaughter, I make this exception. I invite you to look at this site and join our efforts to end DUI and distracted driving.

  3. A beautiful tribute DW. The only things I might add is a mention that the fool who hit them (without using his name ) and the resolution of the case. Maybe something about any fundraising for any of the anti drinking and driving like Mother's Against Drunk Drivers or turn outs at awareness marches??

    You and your family continue to live in my prayers for peace and to end drunk driving.

    As a former drinker I can think of may times that I drove while intoxicated. As I reflect back, today, I can think of little else that I am more ashamed of than being a drunk driver. By the grace of God I never brought harm to anyone, but I believe getting behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated is in fact, intent to commit murder.

    DW, I can not image what your family has been through as a result of this incident, but I appreciate your tribute and will continue to pray for you as you cope in the months and years to come.

    Did they ever lower the boom on the driver?

    On the upper right of the home page are my son and his fiance's name. Click on those to read about them. To the right of their names is "MORE" and a small pull down arrow. Click on the arrow to get to pages on Ruby, the drunk driver and case outcome, how to donate to VIP (Victims Impact Panel), etc.

    Victim's Impact Panel (VIP) is our preferred voice against drunk and impaired driving. (MADD did nothing to help us except ask for a donation.) VIP organizes meetings to address offenders who are court ordered to attend, but they also address students, drug rehab centers and even police graduating classes. Victims, designated offenders and police officers tell their stories and use video displays to get the story to the listeners.
    My wife speaks at these panels. This is where Ruby Promises originated. At the end of her presentation, she asks that the audience members give a Ruby promise to help end DUI and prevent families from having to deal with this horror. Since January of 2016, 3494 individuals have given her their promise.

  10. I can honestly say I've only driven drunk twice, and it was three times too many. I've seen what drunk driving can do to a family to want to ever risk putting another family or my own through that.

    I hate to admit that back in my younger days(60's and 70's) I did it more times than I can remember , and its only by God's grace that I never hurt anyone or got caught !!!
     
  14. This may sound really weird, but I'm both disgusted and proud that I've driven drunk twice. Disgusted that I ever did it at all and that under duress. I was the most sober of the 7 of us and didn't want any of the others to drive, and proud that I've only done it twice and it didn't become a habit.
