My beautiful ballerina had just graduated high school and would soon be off to college. She and her friend went out one evening and were hit head on by a drunk driver doing 95 on the wrong side of the road. Elizabeth took the full force of the collision. We were told she probably would not make it, her injuries were numerous. After a life flight and what seemed like forever in TICU she was sent home in a med vehicle. She never danced again, except at her Wedding! She had to relearn everything but she is here with us and she and her Husband just welcomed our second grandchild, a little boy. She speaks out for those that can’t. From our family to all those who have lost loved ones. Our prayers are with you always.
No more victims!!!
