Most likely another drinking and driving tragedy. I doubt 50% of the people who drive home from bars after midnight are sober.

Drunk drivers kill far more people than guns! Why isn't anyone talking about getting rid of them?

Sandra was a beautiful woman, on the inside as well as the outside. I was her mother-in-law when she was married to my son, Danny. Sandy always cared about people in her life and wanted peace among them all. God knows we will miss her and we pray for her children that God will comfort them as they move forward from this terrible tragedy.
