Drew was our friend and was a cadet in the same class as the father of my children. I was stunned today to see his story in a defensive driving course I’m taking . I remember him and his funeral like it was yesterday and paid many a visit to his resting place for years after his death. I’m glad to see that his senseless death is being included as a cautionary tale in Texas defensive driving courses.
