Ciara, was only 11 years old when a drunk driver ran a red light and T-boned us. We flipped 5 times and landed 5 feet from a gas pump. It indented her door 26 inches . she was life flighted to Herman Memorial Hospital in Houston, Texas. She was in STICU for 6 days. On the 6th day she passed away. She was our only child at the time. It has almost been 22 years that she has been. It seems like forever since I got to hold my little girl. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her and the pain and loss is still the same. I was driving the car. I had some injuries but nothing like my precious child.
