Reflections for Corporal Daniel H. Groves

Corporal Groves, it is not everyone who would go out into a blizzard to assist someone, but you forged ahead. The carelessness of another took the life of a hero. We can only pray that the individual in the second car took a valuable lesson from the experience and tries to be a more cautious and thoughtful person. If so, you taught a lesson and potentially have saved many future lives with your sacrifice. What a horribly sad way to do that.

God Bless you, Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace.
