my heart goes out to the doyle family ,, as i know them personally and met veronica a few times .. im hoping myself that this man get the maximum sentence,, alcohol and drugs should never be mixed or abused but knowing the fact and continuing patterns while under the influence to indanger ppl`s lives is another thing . mr conway knew he had issues years ago , neglecting to get any form of help shows that he dont care of no one only himself and the addiction he is feeding . there are alot more out there like mr conway and with alot of help and effort he can get better but it had to come to this to take the life of veronica first before anything can be done . its ashame to have a life gone because of carelessness .
