As you can see my sister-in-law was lovely
and full of life. She was an inspiration to many.
She is survived by my her
husband, three children, 2 grandchildren,
her brother and Mother.
There are two separate investigations underway.
It is believed by most so far that this was
a preventable accident.
*The boat was 22 feet long
*It's capacity was 12 people
*14 people were on board
*Alcohol was found on board
*Witnesses saw boat occupants
drinking prior to boarding the boat.
*The boat crashed into a moored tug
boat at a speed of 30-35 MPH
*3 people were critically injured
They say she was driving because she was the
only one who could drive that wasn't
The alcohol level in her blood was very low.
If the owner of this boat had acted responsibly,
and been the designated driver for his OWN
boat, this tragedy could have been avoided.
They still are not sure what actually caused
the boat to wreck.
Here is a photo of the boat after they pulled
it from the water.
Friends, if you enjoy an occasional alcoholic beverage,
PLEASE drink in the safety of your own home, and
don't put you or others at risk.
Families are shattered today because of this
boat owner's lack of personal responsibility.
a loved one in this tragic accident.
A couple were quite young.
LIVE AND TEACH
thoughts and prayers.
You are such a blessing to me.
Words seem insufficient to express what's
in my heart...
Love to you all,
