DUI fatalities haunt families for years

There was an article in the Denver Post on 12/20/09 entitled "DUI fatalities haunt families for years".

We know this at GCASA.

GCASA holds a victim impact panel for DWI offenders every month at the Batavia City Centre. It serves primarily people from Orleans, Genesee, and Wyoming Counties. The panel as about 35 people that attend each month.

Laura Ricci coordinates the panel. She can be reached at 585-343-1124 or

There were 340 DWI deaths in New York State in 2008. I hope that you and your family or anyone you love are not killed this holiday season.

Two of my children Brigid and Ryan were killed by a 3 time drunk driver in 1993 when they were 5 and 9. This Christmas they would be 22 and 25. I miss them.
