Interstingly, this victim is from Auburn. Auburn also coughed up CHRIS DANN who lived to drink and speed dangerously everywhere he went, killing an innocent in a fiery head on over the past Xmas holidays. At least he had the decency to die himself unlike this other road terrorist, Zimmie Lynn Burnath aka Mixon. All his Auburn friends were so ticked off DANN'S myspace page boasting of this got outed, and revealed not only what an a-hole he was, an accident waiting to happen, but all his AUburn and nearby friends celebrated by getting drunk, and presumably driving. Now it comes home to roost in Auburn tragically for these parents, who want to see CA get tough on DUI, and driving high. I totally support their efforts to pass this bill, and totally believe they need to face the DUI'ers in their own home town Auburn head on.

FIRST OF ALL, PEOPLE WHO ARE ACHOLHOLICS ARE NOT ROAD TERRORIST, THEY ARE PEOPLE WITH A DECEASE, A SICKNESS. MY HEART BREAKS FOR SCOTT'S FAMILY AND I UNDERSTAND THE ANGER, BUT WE NEED TO WORK ON TUFFER LAWS AND MAKING REHABILITATION COST EFFICENT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK. WE NEED STIFFER SENTANCES ON DUI DRIVERS. THIS COMMENT ABOUT THE DRIVER HAVING DECENCY TO DIE IS DISTRUBING AND THINK..... ZIMMIE WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS HER ENTIRE LIFE IN PRISON I'M SURE, TORTURED FOR TAKING A LIFE. NOT TO MENTION THE PAIN HER FAMILY WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH FOREVER DUE TO HER ACTIONS. ANGER DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM STIFFER LAWS IS WHAT WE NEED! LET GO OF THE HATE AND BE PART OF THE SOLUTION...

oh puleez, you sound like alcoholism is like someone driving blind (which they might as well be) or suffers from seizures. Those who drink and drive HAVE a choice...the innocent victims in their path suffer or/and die. If it were YOUR child,YOUR grandchild, YOUR spouse, YOUR parent...would you be so savvy to "poor thing?"Yeah, alcoholism is a disease. but the self induced dissability should NOT get behind the wheel of a car...period.

I knew Scott slightly through the Southern California Rocket Association, a model rocket club. At the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) Trade Show in January 2010, he won first prizes in both the sport and scale rocket static display competition-- and to his exasperation found that the awards for first place had dropped to 50 bucks each from the previous year's $225.00! The economy had hit them too.

Alcoholism, sin or disease? Debate all you like. Fact: Even revocation of a license won't stop someone whose judgement is impaired by drink from getting behind the wheel of a car.

He was my brother. Furious does not describe how I feel, even a year and an half later. I hurt for this woman's family - they too have to live with what she did. Do I forgive her? Absolutely. No, she didn't mean to, but she still killed him and nothing will bring him back. I loved him dearly. I miss him terribly. The amount of talent he had and the people's lives he affected were phenomenal. That, and that I know he knew Christ as his personal Savior and HE forgives her -- and that I will get to see him in heaven one day, is what helps me keep going and being all I can be for the Lord Jesus Christ and others.

Deedee, thank you for this post! The driver, she is my sister.I have no words that can describe how sorry our family is for this horrible tragedy. My heart breaks for your family everyday. I keep a picture of Scott from the newspaper article about his life, because I never want to forget his kind face. I never want to forget the terrible loss my sister caused your family. I pray for strength and comfort for you all. The Lord is our strength and shelter, our refuge.... it comforts me to know you are a believer and you can forgive, a child of Our God! God bless you!

Well I just want to say Zimmie Lynn Mixon deserves it. She was an LVN in home health and she was assigned to my son for home health care she lasted two days before we fired her. She was reporting to work high as a kite, She probably stole my sons meds. She could have killed my son. I reported her to the agency and the board of nursing. I guess it did not take her long to kill an innocent person. Well I believe in karma I do not feel sorry for Zimme-Lynn Mixon.

Deedee, I was a friend and coworker of Scott and attended his funeral service at the vineyard. I learned more about him than I had previously known. He was a very gifted person and had many irons in the fire - more so than I could have imagined. Sorry for your loss. I'm curious if you ever found out what happened to the person who took his life? I hope justice was served.

Kind Regards,

Matt

You are a horribly insensitive person. Yes, Chris made a mistake. A mistake that cost him his life, and the life of a poor innocent girl, so yes the absolute worst kind of mistake. But Chris was a wonderful person and had a loving and amazing family who all miss him every single day. His mother has now tried to kill herself 4 times. Almost four years later, this pain is still very real. So please be careful of what you say.

To Offended: You can be as offended as you want, you can crawl into a corner and hide behind your lies, but it matters not how nice someone was, DANN did not just "make a mistake"... adding numbers up wrong is a mistake, dialing the wrong number is a mistake, forgetting to mail a bill is a mistake, but KILLING SOMEONE WHEN DRUNK is a DASTADELY CRIME. He was an adult, not a boy. Himmler was reputed to be ever so nice to his friends, but he was a monster to the rest of the world. You kids need to grow up and accept that because someone is nice to you, there could be a monster lurking inside. YOU need to learn to grow a backbone and accept the truth. With grace. And stop drinking and driving, y'all STILL doing it and one of you will likely kill again this holiday season. Really, license to procreate needs to be revoked.

ANd BTW let me tell you that if you think I'm insensitive, the family of the victims, the REAL victims, (not your murderous road terrorist, your friend, thank GOD he's off the roads 4ever) think that YOU are beyond insensitive, pretentiously excusing road murder, that you're basically DNA challenged, beyond any capability of growing either up or a backbone.
