Another Lost Family Member

Monday we had running to do. Tuesday we finally got to go on our normal Walmart run. Mom had been busy for 2 months with Grandma of course and we hadn't went together. There was so much stuff to get we had 2 carts almost full. Then I got a text message from my dad to call. Hmm. When I called I could tell something was wrong. Then he broke the news. My cousin was killed....
He was driving and probably texting. He was my Uncle's only son. When I was little we ran around together like brother and sister since we were both only children. We grew apart while growing up. He made choices with his life I didn't understand. Drugs. But of course I always loved him. He was my cousin. Now he's gone. Please if you text or know someone who does while driving show them this picture. Is it worth it?? Whatever it is it can wait until you are safe. So now another funeral.....*sigh*

  6. So sorry for your loss. Using your phone, in any way, is illegal here in the UK. When you see the results of using them it all makes perfect sense.

  7. Belated condolences, Katie. I don't text and drive.... way to dangerous. I don't even like it when I see people holding a phone to their head when they're driving.
