i have had seen the show as where i was so overwhelmed that i couldn't imagine on how it would feel to loose a loved one to a drunk driver i have been wondering why its not listed anywhere, and was there a reason that this program was not allowed to be shown i would love to buy a copy, have any idea on where i can even buy one i would be grateful, i would be sure to watch it over and over again i love watching the old TV shows.. i feel like i am living in that life again.. making me feel like i am not old as i don't feel old,

but my kids and grandkids end up watching some of the old shows and there like grandma..
