Grieving Dad’s Shocking Message to the Drunk Driver Who Killed His Daughter

You’ll be shocked when you learn the identity of the drunk driver who killed this mans young daughter. This grieving father’s emotional message to that drunk driver will bring tears to your eyes.

Rick Ellis lost his 6-year old daughter Lindsey in a car crash. The reckless, inebriated driver loved having fun, partying, staying up late and drinking whiskey.

Whenever life got too boring or too stressful, they would reach for that bottle. This time, that impulse ended in tragedy that took their own life, as well as Lindsey’s.

Rick, the grieving father, had a full and heavy heart and he needed to deliver a message to that driver.

So he stood at Lindsey’s grave and recorded an emotional plea dedicated to those who drink and drive, in hopes they will rethink their ways and prevent another tragedy waiting to happen.

What a powerful message he sends to us all!

  28. PLEAASE IF U HAVE A FACEBOOK I WANT TO BECOME U R FRIEND IM GOIN THREW SOME DIFF THINGS AND I THINK GOD LET ME SEE U R POST DONNA MOORE

  29. Praying for you in this difficult time.
    Try to do something positive to make you
    feel better. Can you do volunteer at a hospital on the Pediatric floor? It might help you and I know it will help them. Stay strong. I will continue to pray for you.

  30. I am so sorry you lost you daughter. I lost my son in 1980; he drowned in an irrigation ditch in an inch of water. He was taken to the hospital and put on life support systems for almost two weeks before it was realized that he’d never get better. He died. Loss of a child is the worst kind of loss and your heart is never the same again. But you do learn a very valuable lesson after you survive it.. You never take life for granite again and you live every day to it’s fullest cause nothing in life is guaranteed. God gives us many blessings in life and we need to be thankful for those blessings. Anyone of our loved ones or friends of today might be the angel that’s watching over our shoulder tomorrow. Take care of yourself my friend.

  31. My heart goes out to this poor father.

  32. i am so sorry for your loss 🙁 i am a mother of 3 beauiful children. i would be lost with out them … again i am so sorry

  33. My heart was touched as you took a tragedy and turned this into a testimony! May God continue to fill your void with a comfort that only he can give! Thank you for sharing to the world. I have shared your video to many people in hopes that it will change the world!God bless you on your journey!

  34. I’m so sorry for your loss. Word cannot express how much my heart breaks for you. I wanted to thank you as well for your message. I have had a dear friend struggling with addiction. Affecting her kids and the only reason I stayed in her life was for her kids. I showed her your video yesterday and today she called me saying she was ready to go get help. I dropped her off at detox an hour ago and I am watching her kid while she gets the help she needs. Thank you. I know that wasn’t easy for you but I want you to know you have helped 2 kids get their mom the help she needs by your words. God bless you. And again I’m so sorry for your loss.

  35. I was not strong to stop my husband from drinking and driving, thank god he never got in to a accident with me and or our to daughter, they are older now and one has a son and a baby on the way she is the one who showed this to me, I just hope that her boyfriend see this. My husband has stop drinking now, I only hope someone else dose and dose not listen to his brother and sister,you can have a lot of fun doing other thing and cost a lot lest. Please everyone remember this is one thing you can not replace or fix with glue or tape, it is gone for good out of your life never to return, and all because you had a drink or drugs or maybe both, instead of giving them a hug or kiss.

    I am so sorry for your loss, I know the pain I lost my 6 year old son Ryan on July 30th 1988 when a man who wasn’t paying attention hit my son on his bicycle and killed him instantly. Here is my hope for you, time lessens the pain but you will never forget, I hope for you that your family and friends will talk about your little girl and allow you to cry in front of them. I hope for you that you can look at pictures of her and have the faith that you know you will see her again someday. I hope for that in her memory you are the best you can be and that you focus on your son. That is my prayer for you.

  37. So sorry for your loss, at least she is at peace in Heaven now. You were so brave making this video, I hope it helps at least one person fight their addiction and reclaim their life. God bless x
