Very sorry for your loss. I agree, no parent should ever have to bury a child. I lost my brother to a drunk driver when he was 18 and I saw what it did to my parents. I wouldn't wish that on my enemies. You are right, you will ALWAYS be her Dad. BTW, how did sentencing go yesterday? I hope they threw him under the jailhouse.

When you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
No man should loose his child - especially his little girl. Sorry for your loss.
Great privilege comes with great responsibility.
I am so sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine the pain to lose a child. I have two and they are everything to a parent. I am choked up thinking about you in court looking at this individual and trying to get your thoughts out about your loss. Keep those good thoughts about your daughter in your heart as she will always be with you!!! Nothing can prepare you for such an ordeal. As you know folks here are like extended family!
God Bless you and your family
You all need to reassure your families of what you have and if it is not as you want it, fix it! Bob
It's the call every parent dreads and I'm very sorry for your loss.
One of the most fearful experiences of my life was driving up to the scene of a head-on collision between my daughter, with two of my grandkids in the car, and drunk driver with no license (illegal alien but that's another story) that drove across the median in his drunken stupor and slammed into her car. I don't know what the combined speeds of the cars were (speed limit was 40 mph on this road) but the airbags and seat belts help them avoid any critical injuries.

Wow, sorry to hear about your loss! Glad to hear that you're handling it well, though, as I can only imagine.
Maybe the continuance will be a good thing: time for you to practice and better prepare your statement, and they may decide to give him even more time if he gets off easy on the other charges. Best of luck!
Sorry for your loss. No one should lose a child. I hope his sentencing helps you to get past the loss.

You and your family are in My prayers.
Sorry for your loss.
I too know the feeling of someone close, gone too soon.
My 13 yr old brother died in 1976 when I was 16.
Still think about him , and what could have been.
If I'm reading your post above correctly, she was riding on the back of his motorcycle?
Knowing he had too much to drink?
Hopefully we can all use this this as a stark reminder to all our loved ones, to NOT drive/ride with anyone who is drunk.
Anyway,, The guy does sound like bad news and hopefully he does a long stint.
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

Yes, she was the passenger and she was also drinking. She has some fault in her death. Several bad choices were made that evening, resulting in her death.
You are quite correct in your last comment that I quoted.
My prayers and condolences go out to you. As hard as it is to loose a loved one, I can't imagine the pain of losing a daughter. You are an inspiration to us. You show us that no matter how bad things get, we must appreciate all the blessings we still have.

Hope you are able to make lemonade out of the lemons that have invaded your life. I pray God keeps His hand on you and your family. My daughter turns 16 this week and we begin her adventure into driving.

My thoughts to you and your family. It sounds like a tragedy all the way around. You sound so strong, I'm sure your daughter would be proud.
