Touched by Summer Moll's story




Cheryl Lassiter, a former St. Petersburg resident who is director of a Volunteer Mobile Emergency Response Unit in Austin, Texas, writes about how touched she was by the story of 4-year-old Summer Moll. The little girl was critically injured in a head-on crash in September that killed her mother.

"I am the mother of six children and could not even fathom the thought of even one of my children facing such a reality as this. The truth is no one can and more than likely you (the Times) have offended a small percent of the readers in the St. Pete Times area and that's ok too," she writes on

She followed up with an e-mail later saying "I pray that many will take this story and apply it to their everyday lives so that not one more person dies like Summer Moll's mother did."
