it is always hard to except when someone is killed by a drunk driver. it is unexceptable. it is ecspecially hard to deal with when it is someone who has always been there for you. someone as special as Robert. Robert was my brother. he was my friend. we were very close. it has been a rough couple of weeks since this tradgedy took the life of my brother. the last thing he said to me was how proud he was of me and that he was sure that mom was too! i cannot help but to be angry that he was taken from us at such a young age. i was not finished being his little brother who he protected when we were kids. he would tell me it would be alright when something bad happened. he was more that a brother to me. he helped my kids and i whenever we needed it. he never asked for anything in return. he was on his way to nashua that night. to do his laundry. he was minding his own business and now he is gone. please, if you are reading this comment, i urge you to not take anything for granted. tell your friends and family how you feel about them every day. do not put it off because with the blink of an eye, it can be all over. thank you to everyone that has been there with your prayers and thoughts. god bless you all
