Nima was a fantastic young girl. I didn't know her personally but we played soccer and basketball together a couple of years ago and I do believe I know her from somewhere else but I cannot remember and it is very frustrating!! But Nima, hearing all of the great things about you and just looking at a picture of you I can tell that you were a beautiful, Sweet and so many other unexplainibal things! Nima, you will live on!!!!!!!!!! I love you!!!!!

During my travels across the U.S, I had met many people across the U.S. Many newspapers will do stories from those who passed away because of some drunks on the road. I had witness a elderly gentleman who came close of being hit by a drunk on the road. Why do drunks wants to drive their cars is unknown to me. Why are they ever on the streets when the drunks will pass out and lay on the street to nap or sleep off their horrible behavior. My web page on computer for over 15 years at:

Ah man I still remember Nima very well. It's my last year playing basketball and I'm thinking of her often at this time.
