Ms. Olson was not notified of Tiffiany’s passing for several
hours and was not able to say her last goodbyes. Ms. Olson
was heartbroken. She then found the silver lining to an otherwise
dark cloud. Ms. Olson, with the assistance of State Representative
Bill Galvano from Bradenton District 68, began pushing for
emergency information to be added to a person's driver's license or identification card.
Since the information could not be printed directly on a license,
Ms. Olson and Rep. Galvano contacted the Department of Highway
