The saddest deaths are the needless ones. An alcohol death is needless.

I think it would be best to wait for the reports to come back before they say anything.

I agree Cindy - this is a good way to drag her name through the mud if it's not true...

Sober people don't drive into ponds.

It makes me mad that the papers have to put that she was twice convicted of prior DWIs. I feel bad for her family. May she rest in peace!

I'm well aware of that, but what if she was ill and that is what caused it. I'm not saying alcohol wasn't the cause, but at least wait until the tox reports come back to say so.

They do if they're not paying attention,ie; texting/yakking on their cell phone. Or if there's a mechanical problem.

Believe me, I have been praying for her and her family so I said God Bless several times already. She was a friend of mine.

My thoughts and prayers to the Porterfield family as well as to Bryan Peltier (you did the best you could). This story hits close to home; I have a sister who (like Debbie) has those same demons. It’d be nice if people posting wouldn’t be so judgmental and cynical. You'll never know until you have a spouse/family member/friend who is in the same situation.

Your friend Debbie was a gorgeous lady and apparently had a lot to live for. It's too bad alcohol had such a strong hold on her. God bless you and her family.
