One of my best friend's brother who was a good friend of mine and I had known since the 5th grade passed away this morning due to a drunk driver. He was run over in St.Cloud by a speeding Humvee.
My friend was only about 17 and was an extremely bright young guy. He had started his own rock band and was always making people smile. Please pray for his family as they cope with the loss of their son.
Sorry 2 hear this Another life gone....Horrible facts of life
I come humbly before your throne and I lift up the family and friends of this young man. I pray that you would touch them with your healing, soothing balm in the midst of the loss of their loved one too soon. Surround them with your loving arms and hold them as only you can. Heal their wounded hearts and remind them that even in the midst of the valley you are with them. I pray for wisdom and discernment for those that minister to this family to speak life and words of healing. Guard their hearts. Lord, you catch every tear and you cry with us in our midnight hour. Surround them with songs of deliverance. In Jesus' Name I Pray! Amen!
That's terrible, so sad. My thoughts and prayers going out to this young man's family.
Hope you all can find enough comfort to make it through the coming days as easily as possible, under the circumstances.
Sorry to hear that, Brian. I'd like to add more to this post, but I know too well how little saying much of anything would help. I thought twice about adding the following (because I don't want to look like I'm trying to "make it about me" under the circumstances); but I'm the survivor of an accident caused by a drunk, speeding, driver. My own best friend since childhood was killed. I don't know.... I guess I kind of feel as if I can relate to your friend's family, your friend, and you. There are thousands every year - and people keep on driving drunk and/or speeding. Thoughts go out to your friend's family.
I hate to hear about kids dying....I can truly understand those parents....God Bless, and yes, I know this is not a religous forum and I'm still going to say it!
Sincere condolences and best wishes to his family and friends.
Sorry to hear about this. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and family.
It always saddens me when I hear about the lives lost due to drunk / careless driving. And so young, too! Condolences to the family. Hope they will be able to cope up with this loss. Hope too that they will realize that their son had a very good friend in you.
Oh My God!! That is horrible if you get a chance read about my dad I know the pain. http://hubpages.com/_dwn4bbs4rxf1/hub/D … ving-Laws-
My prayers are with them and there's that makes me so angry!
I'm so sorry. There is an article on Fox9 about it.
My prayers are with the families & you.
I just heard the same report and got done watching the news myself.

Research lately is claiming that night driving might be as worst as drunk driving. Do you believe this? what are your opinions?

Don't know if this is the appropriate place to put this, Team HP, move it to wherever it needs to go, but last night my dear friend and fellow hubber Tess45's son ended his life. She, as you can imagine is devastated. Please send warm thoughts her way. I'm sure they'll be...

I wrote about it. I am completely against it and my father died because of a drunk driver. I have forgiven the driver but our family member cannot be replaced. If people are going to drink they should be responsible and have a designated driver or drink at home. Never ever get behind the wheel of a...
