All drunk drivers should attend funerals
I just read the story in Saturday’s Advocate (A stunning act of wrongdoing) on the Canada Day 2010 drunk driving accident.
I want to make you aware of the error in saying the older brother was unable to attend his brothers funeral ... as my own 13-year-old and I attended her friend’s funeral, and we watched two paramedics wheel Jamie Chanminaraj up to his deceased brother’s casket on a stretcher.
The congregation wept audibly as they looked on while for a long, long moment, the surviving brother grappled with farewell along with his own injured state.
Heartbreaking does the memory no justice.
If only Rodney Arens had attended the funeral.
I wish all people who killed others while drunk driving had to attend these gut-wrenching funerals as part of the justice process.
