    SEATBELTS…… My kids are told if they get caught not wearing their seat belts they can kiss their cars goodbye and plan on not being allowed to go anywhere with friends unless their mother gives everyone the talk. Don’t be stupid it’s really not that hard………

    My son was one of those involved in this accident and luckily he was wearing his seatbelt. My heart goes out to the family of the 2 who were lost in this tragic accident and to the friends of all involved as well. They are lost but will always be remembered just as the tragic loss of the friend earlier this month who was hit by 2 vehicles. They all will be remembered and were all loved and touched many lives in the short time they were here.
