In an instant, life can change forever. This was the case for Mary Peluso when her son Stephen, from her first marriage, was killed after being hit by a car in August 1972. On the 35th anniversary of the accident, Mary talked with her daughter Rakel Boisvert about coping with her loss and how she eventually found the strength to forgive.
