Tina Yanssens just wants her father back.
“His cheeks, I would swear he would get tired from smiling cause when he smiled it was his whole face that smiled. So, I miss that.”
But their time was cut short after he was struck and killed by a driver who was texting. It is a moment that has launched a crusade.
Yanssens hasn’t fully healed from the loss of her best friend. Her father.
Dave Muslovski had been getting healthy, losing weight, walking hours each day.
It was June 2010, the day after Father’s Day, when fate came weaving down a rural road in Springfield Township.
A 19-year-old, phone in hand, fingers at work. She struck Dave. He was only 54.
“She did not leave the scene. She just did not stop immediately at the scene. She was a couple hundred yards down the road,” Tina said, adding that the young driver never walked back to her father, to see if she could help.
