On September 19, 2016, I arrived home to find a police car in my driveway. When the officer asked me if I was Mrs. Kiefer and asked to go inside the house I knew something terrible had happened. It’s every Mothers nightmare. When he informed me that Mitchel had been in a fatal car crash I thought this can’t be real, there must be some mistake. He then showed me a photo of Mitchel and I fell to the floor with a feeling I can’t even begin to describe. I had no idea what the hours, days, months and even years had in store for me and my family. If we can prevent just one family from this senseless, preventable and unimaginable tragedy we have honored our son in the most important way.
