Drinking and Driving Can Lead to Inability to Observe Much

Drinking and Driving Can Lead to Inability To Observe Much

To the imaginative people whose collective and creative genius gave us the car on the dome on Monday, May 9, thank you. As parents, we worry about your moving to such dazzling heights, though seeing it did give us some poignant but pleasant memories.

We feel sure that our son, Albert Lester '82 would have loved seeing it and talking about it. Albert was killed on his bicycle on June 7, 1992 by a drunk driver. His spirit may even have been up there with you the other night, chuckling and giving some silent encouragement. Thank you for giving us pleasant thoughts to remember amidst the sad ones.

As you go into the outside world, please go safely and above all, please, please don't drink and drive.

George and Virginia Lester

Parents of Albert Lester '82, Sept. 26, 1960 - June 7, 1992.
