What breaks our hearts is the fact that one innocent child had to live with the consequences of this drunk driver’s actions! She lost her mother because of some drunk driver’s stupid mistake. It was a tragedy that could have been avoided if only people would not drive while they have had a few drinks.

The baby girl looks adorable as she tried on her mommy’s hat while the rest of the uniform was gathered around her yet the reality of the situation is enough to bring us to tears. This is so sad…

For anyone who is planning on just having a “few beers” and driving home after, look at this little girl. She will grow…
