    My niece was killed this morning

    ....In an auto accident at 4 a.m. 12/18, not far from where I live. She and a friend were coming back from a night out partying, her friend was driving and speeding. There was a State Trooper right there where the accident occurred and he clocked the car (Acura Integra Type-R) at 94 m.p.h. when they hit the exit ramp.

    The driver, a longtime friend of hers, blew a 0.24 BAC and was immediately arrested. She had her seatbelt on. My neice, Susan, did not. <sigh> The driver was arraigned and charged with DUI and aggravated involuntary manslaughter, which is "a felony punishable by a term of imprisonment of not less than one nor more than twenty years, one year of which shall be a mandatory, minimum term of imprisonment."

    Susan was a 22 year-old single mother, just had her baby, Julie, last month, and she and her friend had been planning their get-together for weeks, since Susan had been in the house for so long and didn't party when she was pregnant.

    The funeral will probably be Monday, since we don't want to bury her on her birthday, which is Tuesday.

    Life is so hard sometimes. I sure could use a break.

    You guys be careful over the holidays, okay?










    Susan and my son, Tony:

    This is just plain wrong.

    My sympathies for you and your family's great loss,

    I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.

    Guys, thank you for your kind words. As always, I keep my SpeedGuide family informed of important events, good and bad. After all, we are a family, however separated by distance.

    Thanks again.

    Eric

    Letting this soak in, I'm in the same boat as theLurker...It brings back some unpleasant memories for me.


    Again, my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

    Eric,

    So sorry to hear that, a death in any way is one of the hardest things to go through. Be strong, bro.

    touched my heart

    Ghost, prayers from myself and other speedguide members are with you at this time. I lost my Mom due to the end result of drinking & driving. Unfortunately, no court nor punishment can bring them back. Truely sorry for your loss, try to help hold your family together. Always watch out for her child for her. Peace be with you..
