Last night in our area, a guy in a Hummer hit two cyclists (broken bones) and rear ended a truck before he hit and killed a 20 year old, narrowly missing another cyclist, and drove off.
My sons went through school from 1st grade on with the young man who was killed and were good friends with him and his younger brother. We became friends with his parents and have done a lot of things with them over the years. This young man was a truly awesome person and will be missed by many.
Just last month, a 19 year old at our church died of a seizure. He and my sons were friends and we are very close to his parents. He, too, was a great young man. Over 600 turned out for his memorial service.
Two young men who are close in age to our sons are gone. Neither family knew what was coming and are now trying to figure out what the future looks like without their sons.
