This video brought me to tears. Rick Ellis lost his daughter Lindsey at just 6-years-old to a drunk driver who liked to stay up late, party, drink whiskey, and have fun.
Heartbroken, Ellis stood at her grave in tears and recorded an emotional plea to those who still drive under the influence to rethink their ways.
“I’m going to show you something that is the end result of your partying on Friday nights, Saturday nights, whenever. Want to get drunk, play around, get stupid? This is what happens…” Ellis said before turning his camera to the headstone. Written were the names Christy M. Johnson Ellis and Lindsey Kay Ellis.
The drunk driver who killed Lindsey was her own mother.
