  2. My Mother Was Involved In The Motorcycle Wreck May 29th, 2021. She Was The Passenger & Her Boyfriend Was The Driver. My Mother Was Seriously Injured And Has Just Returned Home From Grady Hospital Where She Was Life Flighted Too. After She Came Home, My Sister Had To Take My Mother Back To The Hospital & Was Informed She Had Some More Injuries That Was Never Brought To Her Attention Or The Family, Grady Hospital Never Spoke Of These, They Never Put It On Her Paperwork Either. Not Only Is She Suffering The Injuries From The Wreck But She Is Also Suffering A Tragic Memory Of Losing The Man She Loved & That Will Forever Be A Tragic Memory She Will Never Be Able To Forget. Both Families Are Numb To The Pain This Night Has Caused. And If Everyone Would Please Keep My Mother & The Loss Of her Boyfriend & The Grieving Of His Family In Your Thoughts & Prayers.
