Marci Lyn


My daughter Marci Lyn was killed in a car accident by a negligent driver who ran a light on Aug. 28, 2001. She was 29 years old and was on her way to work when a man driving a city truck with a plow hook still attached hit her car and caused extreme harm to her body. She was on a respirator for four days with her family by her side the whole time. She had multiple serious injuries and she was brain dead. She was one of two daughters and was beautiful inside and out. Eventually I went to The Compassionate Friends meetings and became the editor of the newsletter. Doing all of this research for the newsletter helped me knowing that I was helping others. There isn't a moment in any day that I don't think of her and hurt but I keep going each day and have good memories. Mary Sayward
