Our only child, Heather, was taken from us Sept. 21, 2012. Life is tough knowing our daughter was taken by a crime that should be stopped. Heather was killed by an illegal underage drunk driver. He had been in trouble with the law several times prior to running his uncle’s SUV into the car Heather was riding in. Not a minute, day, month or year goes by that we don’t wish that Heather was here with us. The affects of losing someone to drunk driving is not acceptable. Something needs to be done about the punishment to these criminals. We not only lost a piece of our hearts but so many of her friends did too. See the family and loved ones of the victims suffer more than the criminals do.
