Please...

promise yourself and David, and all of us who share the roads with you,
that from now on, whenever you drink, you will not get behind the wheel of a car. Period.
No excuses. No "just this once won't hurt."
Your promise won't give David back the fifty plus years of laughter and learning and love he should have had, but it could save your life...or someone else's.
