Jolene Torres often replays her daughter Jaimie Jursevics’s last voicemail every time she longs for her. Jursevics was tragically killed by a drunk driver last November.

“I think about her the first thing in the morning when I wake up, I think about her the last thing at night and I think about her throughout the day," said Torres, adding her grief for her daughter's tragic death will never die. “I realize I’m going to carry this with me until I take my last breath,” she said.

On November 15 of last year, Torres received the devastating call from Jaimie’s husband.

“I said, 'tell me what's going on, tell me what's going on,' and he said, 'the highway patrol is here' and then I knew it was Jaimie and I knew if they were there -- that it wasn't good,” said Torres.

Jursevics left behind a loving husband and an eight month old daughter. Jolene said the only memory her grand-daughter Morgan will have of her mother are pictures with only a few capturing them together.

“She is too young, she'll never remember her mother,” said Torres.

Torres said organizations like Flying Wheel Foundation have helped the entire family get through the painful process of losing a loved one.
