On May 17th of this year, Paula Nersesian was killed on the corner of Main street and Mockingbird after an alleged drunk driver hit her car directly.

Her husband, Dr. Joseph Long, still remembers the day the officer told him she had passed away.

"They said the name of your wife, and I said Paula Nersesian, and he said well we regret to tell you she has been in an automobile accent and so then I said well is she ok, and he said she did not survive He then handed me her purse," said Long. 

Paula was a beloved member of her church, community and family.

In honor of her memory, the Texas Department of Transportation put up a sign near the intersection of Main Street and Mockingbird telling drivers not to drink and drive.

One thing Dr. Long said he will never forget about his wife is her happy attitude and the amazing bond they shared.

"She was always happy we never fought in 30 years of marriage, which is a feat in itself but we got along very well," said Long

Dr. Long said he is happy that the sign is going up, and hopes it will makes drivers think twice about getting behind the wheel once they have been driving.
