A site dedicated to our son Marcus Manny. Hopefully through this blog we can persuade people from driving while distracted. Hoping we can convince people to turn their vehicles into Phone Free Zones. Hoping that we can show that Distracted Driving is a harmful phenomenon with devastating effects. We pray that by sharing our loss and experiences, we can prevent people from making the same mistake our son made and in turn save lives and families from immeasurable grief.
Today we had Marcus' Graveside blessed. When our son passed just a little over two years ago, I did not even think of having a Catholic priest present during the funeral and the burial. I was just too numbed and was not thinking straight. This year I vowed to myself to make sure that Marcus received his Catholic ceremony.

About thirty-five people people from both sides of our family, Marcus' friends from high school and college and some of my co-workers joined us in remembering Marcus.
