Family remembers and reminds young and old that drinking and driving kills

In loving memory of Michael Allen Bright: May 8, 1972 - Nov. 30, 1994

   It's been five long years since you were taken from us and not a minute goes by that we don't think of you. Tears are shed every day when I think of you.

   Tuesday will be the day this happened five years ago, so I beg of kids young and old, friends or not, please think twice before you get behind the wheel while drinking or even in a passenger seat as Mike did--here's proof drinking and driving kills. Please think before you make the same mistake.

   "If someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure."

   Mike: we love you and miss you.

Love, Mom, Dad, and brothers
