    Logan was a sweet man, he would give you the shirt off his back if he could.. He never left you alone, sad. Logan was amazing.. I love you, Logan..

    For the man who hit logan, I asked God, every minute and everytime i fall asleep, “why?”..” Why did it happen? Why was he under the influence behind a wheel? Why did he do it?” I will never know why.. I will never get my answers.. You will soon, look everyone in the eyes that are hurting and feel the pain. You can be behind bars, but what would that change? Nothing, My heart hurt, you can say “sorry” but it wouldnt bring him back. I forgive you… In the bible, it says to forgive and to always love one another. I do not love you, but i do forgive you. I pray this will haunt you forever. I pray that you feel the pain that we do, And i pray you learned how bad and hard it is to lose someone the way we all lost our Logan. Our logan will be laid to rest at the age of 23, he still had a FULL life ahead of him, and we will never see him moving on with his life EVER. He went so young, he had dreams, and plans. You took that away from us.

    If this was gods plan, i pray that when god comes for his people, I will see logan beside him with his hand out.. I love you Logan Heath Barrett, May you rest in peace Darlin, I’ll see you soon.

    A tragedy which will happen over and over again until we get serious about drunk driving. Ignition interlocks stop drunk drivers, but the alcohol industry and the restaurant industry lobbyist do not want medical pot, ignition interlocks, and higher dram shop insurance to cover the carnage of innocent pedestrians and drivers. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again dancing to the tune of industry lobbyist as families lose loved ones. Prayers to the victim’s family, and may you find peace in this totally avoidable killing. Prohibition does not work, but an ignition interlock does.
