A Reminder

31 Mar
This is a departure from my usual useless banter.

I had only known Daniel a short time, but in that time, I came to know that he was a kind person who loved life. He was warm and welcoming – one of those people who had that something about him that seemed sincere, right off the bat. He once told me, “Your eyes. They ruin my life.” It made me laugh, and made my face turn all kinds of red. And, even though my reply was, “Clever. I bet you say that to every girl you meet,” it was probably the best and most unique compliment I’ve ever gotten.

After witnessing a deadly motorcycle accident (where the driver of the motorcycle was not at fault) last year, and hearing about the loss of Daniel – I felt compelled to share this story with my family and friends…and now with you, my “blog” friends.

When you have a chance, take a moment to view this article.

Daniel was on his way home from seeing Bill Cosby with his family – they were a few cars behind him. He was 30 years old.

Pass this along to anyone you feel could benefit from a “reminder” to drive safely. Let’s put down our cell phones, pay attention to traffic lights/signs…and save a life.
