Please Don't Drink And Drive

The day befrore Mother's Day in 1983
My daddy my mama my sister and me
Were on our way into town to buy a gift for mom
Little did we know this day the Lord for us would come
One minute I was in the car as happy as could be
Then I woke up soon after that with Jesus holding me
My mama was the only one the Lord allowed to live
He didn't take her home because she had so much to give
It was a senseless accident we didn't have to die
The family we left behind just wanted to know why
But as the Lord says in His word His will must be done
He also promises us one day we all will live as one
I can't begin to tell you what it's like up here
Since we came we have not seen one person shed a tear
The Lord has given each of us a special job to do
Daddy, me and Kristen are watching over you
This message comes straight from my heart
Please don't drink and drive
If that man had used good judgement  we would be alive
But please be comforted by this 
We are all ok and we're waiting here to welcome you
On that great reunion day

In Loving Memory of Bill, Karen and Kristen McKellar 
                In Honor of Joan McKellar Caraway
