Thats good news.We all have to look after our elderly folks and take care of them just as you would a child which is what they did for you. Remember one day you will be in the same situation and God willing someone will be out there for you. Take care your elderly and children and God will be pleased. Do harm to either and pay the piper.

Was that the silver alert I saw on I-95 and I-4 coming back from the Jacksonville area today? How about fully updating this story, so the public knows whether to be on the lookout still, or not.

Such a good thing to remember on Father's Day, to honor our dad and care for him like he did us. Am glad the poor soul was found safe. Who knows what could have happened to her on West Colonial.

I honored my dad today and visited him. I was born on Fathers Day and today was my birthday and the best part of my birthday was visiting my father and sitting down with him and eating a cold slice of watermelon with him. Always be there for your parents like they were there for you. I'm glad this lady was found safe.

Considering you didn't pay attention to that sign in the first place, I guess it shouldn't matter to you. No, there was no Silver Alert for this lady, she didn't meet the requirements.

Some people grow old and still drive just fine... ones ability to drive properly is not something that just vanishes at a certain age. Evolve and enlighten yourself

Who is to testify in favor of your driving ability. You are probably one of the idiots on the road every day.
I hope you live to a ripe old age, so that someone will want you to take your hands off the steering wheel and park your a*s at home.

All is well that ends well, and this sounded like it ended well. Something that needs to be implemented in my book, is some type of designated drivers for elderly people over 65. That way they will be safe and it will create jobs too.

Well, as history buff, I could tell you what the ancient Greeks and Romans would have done. Left her out there. they would have said "Well, if the gods want her to live or come back, she will." That way, she is no longer a burden on the society. Just sayin, that's what they would have done. http://www.apartmentguide.com/apartments/Flor...
