SAN ANTONIO – Friends and family gathered Sunday evening to remember a man killed by a drunk driver three years ago.

Since Hernandez's death, family members say they have been inspired to make a difference. They have been selling barbeque plates to help support Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

"Everybody drinks, you cant lie. One time or another, you have driven, but don't do it, because you are going to end up killing someone's loved one," Roxanne Fernandez, family member.

Rene Cavazos was convicted in Hernandez's death. THe family says Cavazos was sentenced to 18 years in prison about a year ago, and is currently serving his sentence.
