My Story

Who Am I?
I am David Louis Poenicke's little sister. I am the sixth child born to Barbara and Louis Poenicke.

What Am I Doing?
I have created a way to remember my brother and all of the other innocent people that have lost their lives due to the senseless act of driving while intoxicated.

Why am I doing this?
I miss my brother now more than when he died over 26 years ago. I will raise awareness to the pain that is still there and remind others that it never goes away.


David's Law was signed by Govenor Jay Nixon 7/1/09, personalized memorial signs for victims of drunk drivers can be put up on Missouri highways to raise awareness to the preventable problem of drinking and driving...

Each sign will have the victim's initials, month and year in which they were killed. The signs are intended to serve not only as a dedication to those we lost, but also as an educational reminder to the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving. The signs will be at or near each crash location. People always wonder what happened when passing a cross or roadside memorial, this website will provide the story behind the crash.

Ultimately, when a family makes the decision to get a sign for their loved one, we would like to post their personal story on this site and allow people to come and learn more about that special person. WHY??? Because we don't want them forgotten and we don't want this to happen to someone you love.

If only one driver chooses not to drive after drinking, our mission will be accomplished. Another life saved!
