Terry and Sharon lost their son in 2009 at the age of 16 due to a road traffic collision. His loss has left the whole family in a state of shock and Sharon started to tell her story back in 2010. Living without Dean has left all the family with a big hole in their lives. Sharon and Terry feel that speaking at Safe Drive Stay Alive helps them to come to terms with their loss. Sharon adds that if what she says when at these events – telling their story – stays with the young people, then it is worth the pain it takes to relive it.
