Dave Pruet's Shares the Worst Day of His Life

Feb 19, 2023


On Saturday, August 5, 1989, everything changed for Dave Pruet. 


Most of us have not experienced the sudden loss of a loved one due to drunk driving. On that Saturday, David lost two: his wife Tina and 5-year-old son Eddie. Starting with the moments leading up to a horrifying discovery, this Saturday seemed as normal as any other. It would end tragically. The following document sets the stage for a journey of forgiveness that Dave would take over the next several years. 


Please be warned: This document contains Dave's remembrances of that tragic day in August. It is graphic in places. It is difficult to read in others. But it is real and sets the stage for an incredible circumstance of forgiveness.
