However Far Away I Will Always Love You

On a more tragic note 4 years ago today my sister Gabriella was killed by a drunk driver. I'd never talk about it before because it is the most paralyzing & personal catastrophe that has happened in my life. I'm not going to get into it but in short she was my best friend and my other half. Now that I am in a better place in my life I can talk about it to spread awareness about the horrific consequences that come from drinking and driving. If I can get even one person to take a taxi or have a designated driver tonight from reading this I feel somewhat better. Next month, as I have last year, I put on a show in memory of my sister and all proceeds go to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers). Everyone is welcome and the more support the better. You can always donate to MADD online. I've learned it's better to get yer shit together & try to make a difference rather than wallow in self pity. So please don't drink and drive. It'd mean a lot to me and my sister Gabriella Elizabeth Mantini. I love you and miss you more than anything baby girl.
