Sunday (Nov 19th) is World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. Each year I have marked the occasion at an event but today I have decided to share with you all something very personal, powerful and life changing.
If you have time I ask you to sit and listen to this documentary I made. It might just save your life.
Marcus didn’t want to die. He had so much to live for. He had applied to University, had his house designed and much more. Sadly it wasn’t meant to be.
He was much more than a brother, he was a father, a friend, my saviour. Living without him has been a struggle but something I have had to adjust to. I still want to pick up the phone when I am feeling sad and tell him about my day but I cannot do that. Instead I talk to him and hope someday he will give me a sign to let me know he can hear. He was such an influence and left a mark on all our hearts.
His death ripped us apart and changed my perspective on life. I can’t hold onto his life any more, instead I can hopefully save lives and spare families the pain and suffering.
Marcus is now a number, a statistic but I will not let his death be in vein.
What I am sharing is our story, his life and his death. Please take care on the roads.

Hello Meghann, I happened to spot your blog and I read about the sad loss of your brother and subsequently your father. I want to express my condolences to you.
By coincidence I was going through some of my families papers. My parents live in Dublin and their papers include buying double glazing in the late 1970’s from Maxie Scully. I remember the “Maxie Scully” who called to our home because he drove a superb looking car and it had a symbol on it of a silver horse on the bonnet of the car.
I doubt that there were many people named Maxi Scully’s around and I was wondering if that description fits your dad? This man was quite a character and a very nice person to deal with according to my parents.
Hi there Willy,
So sorry for the delay in getting back to you but yes Maxie was my father. And he had the windows business when we lived in Dublin.
He was some character.Thank you so much for getting in touch,
