Light a Virtual Candle for Your Loved Ones
By MADD | November 30, 2012| 28 Comments | Filed in: Drunk Driving , Victim Services

Behind every drunk driving statistic is a person whose life was full of family and friends, love and life, joy and laughter.  They are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Their lives touched so many and they will never be forgotten.

This holiday season, we are asking everyone to take part in our online celebration of life candlelight vigil, and light a virtual candle in honor of a loved one who was killed or injured in a drunk driving crash.

You can share their story or write them a message, and light a candle in their honor or memory. Participate in our online tribute by lighting your virtual candle now.

Each and every day I think of your big smile and contagious laughter. Each and every day that I want to text you, or wait for your text....I remind myself you are no longer with us us. Why you were taken from us, we will never know nor understand, we will forever have a hole on our hearts. I love you big brother! I will someday hear your laughter once again! Miss and love you more than you'll ever know! Big Brother Gilbert Quintana-Sena Gone Fishin 11/5/2011

Derest Alan, In my emptiness since I lost you I hope and pray the MADD and the State of Florida can do something significant legally to recognize those who have killed our loved ones and stop this lethally reckless life style.
