A few years ago, Rick Ellis was a happy father who appeared to have everything a man could want in this life. Then, his 6 year-old daughter Lindsay was killed by a drunk driver, and his life fell apart.
The grieving father shot a video message at his daughter’s grave, and it has quickly gone viral.
“I’m going to show you something that is the end result of your partying on Friday nights, Saturday nights, whenever. Want to get drunk, play around, get stupid? This is what happens…” Ellis said before turning his camera to the headstone.
On the headstone are written two names: Lindsay Ellis and Christy M. Johnson Ellis. The little girl wasn’t killed by a random drunk driver: the drunk driver was her own mother.
