Name:David Charles Green

Date of Passing:1/29/2007
County/Road of Fatal Collision:Williamsburg County/Epps Rd.

David Charles Green was a hard worker, father, son, brother and friend. He is tremendously missed.

David Charles, as we called him all his life, (First and middle name) was only 24 when he went home to our Father in Heaven. He was receded in death with his 3 year old daughter, Sara Alexis Green, and a very close friend of his.

The cause of death was truly a tragedy which was a three- car collision.

The collision happened on Epps Rd. at approximately 7:10 p.m. on Sunday, January 28, 2007. His daughter, Sara, and his friend died instantly. His 2-year-old son, who was also in the car, was thrown out but he survived with only a leg/thigh injury. He is truly a miracle child to come out alive. He is the only surviver that was in my brother's car.

David Charles and Sara, Father and Daughter, lived together, played together, had good times, died and are buried together.

David Charles was much more than a brother to me. He was my friend and somewhat a father figure to me too. I remember a time when we were younger, we were inseparable. Always together and did everything together. The last conversation we had was the day before the accident. He called me and told me that he wanted to come to Clemson to get us on Sunday so we could spend some time together.

I told him no because Mama is not going to feel like driving for eight hours. He said, "I'm going to help her drive." I told him no and that I'll come another weekend because they would be tired from all that driving.

It didn't dawn on me then but now I believe that he wanted to spend some time with me before he went. There's so much I wanted to say to him before he left and so many things I wanted to do with him.

He was supposed to give me away at my wedding but now he can't. Even though I know he's there in spirit and in my heart, it's not the same. No one knows my pain and how I feel inside. He's the closest person to me that I have lost so far. I miss him so much. I thought maybe it would get better by the days, weeks, months and years, but it hasn't so far. I love him so much and I wish that he could come back but I know he's in a much better place and that he's looking upon us, so I just have to accept it and move on. God makes no mistakes. I just never thought I would see this day so soon.

In addition to what I wrote above, Everyone misses him so much and wishes he didn't have to go so soon. Everybody is dealing with it the best way we know how. Our family chain is broken but one day it will link again as God calls us home.
