The night of January 21, 2012 i recieved a phone call that changed my life forever. My neice age 9 was killed in a car accident. A drunk driver had hit the car my neice was traveling in along with 4 other people. Her uncle age 18 also became an angel that day.The 3 others recieved serious injures as well. the drunk driver recieved minor injuries of course it always works like that. My neices name was also Andrea like myself she always refered to herself as lil Andrea tho we all called her Shorty. Shorty was born a down syndrome child and had a developmental delay, but that never stopped her from accomplishing her goals. She was the most caring loving child. she had such a unique character. Being she was my neice thru marriage it took her time to warm up to me but that is wat made it a bond like no other. i remember christmas eve 2011 i was upset about my grandmother whom had passed and my shorty she came up and sat on my lap wiped my tears and said Big andrea dont cry you have to be a big girl. those are words that run thru my mind everyday. i miss her so much and it kills me everyday i find myself searching online looking any updates on the drunk driver i sit and stare at his mug shot and think to myself does this man realize the pAIN he caused? The lives he took so precious and young. so innocent! All because his stupidity we lost a huge part of our circle. It was a saturday afternoon 1pm early afternoon and this man was drunk and decided for whatever reason he was going to get behind the wheel and drive. i always think to myself maybe if he had left minutes before minute after maybe it wouldnt have happen, but then i think everything happens for a reason.... but i dont understand why she and her uncle were chosin. im so lost ever since we laid her to rest it still to this day feels so unreal i cant except the facts more like i dont want to.
