Though I could not caution all, I still might warn a few- Ship of Fools

This Sunday, 5/28 will mark the 24th anniversary of the death of my 1st husband. I post this early for one reason and one reason only. Please use caution this holiday weekend. If you drink, please don't drive. If you drive, please know that there may be someone coming at you who is drunk. Watch out for the other guy. My husband was the other guy.

RIP - Richard M Teed, Jr.
12/13/57 - 5/28/82

Awww, Helen, that just breaks my heart. I hope others will see your message and take heed. I have blogger friends who don't think it's a big deal and I don't want to be preachy or butt in, but I think your message is so important and needs to be told.

It's not all fun and games anymore when you combine alcohol with a motor vehicle.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hey sweetie,
I'm sorry I wasn't able to be over here until now. I remember this time last year, first reading this. I'm a strong supporter of MADD.

Hugs to you as you remember your first husband.
