Rick, the heartbroken dad, stood at Lindsey’s grave and recorded this emotional plea dedicated to those who drink and drive so that they can rethink their ways and save lives.
Rick Ellis is determined to show the tragedy that can result from a night of partying. In the video Ellis says:
“I’m going to show you something that is the end result of your party on Friday nights, Saturday nights, whenever.”
Ellis then pans the video to his daughter’s grave. Ellis becomes extremely emotional when talking about the reason his daughter was taken from him so early.
Who was the drunk driver? Her own mother!
Ellis’ video has gone viral, touching people around the country who have lost relatives.
This is the first time a post has made me cry...So much! The pain that man is carrying is terrible. Prayers for him. This is very humbling, sad and a great message.
