  1. Please except my deepest condolences on the loss of a brave young man. Through no fault of his own he lost his life tragically at the hands of someone who probably is unfit to drive. I hope and pray justice will be done, but usually people like that just get a slap on the wrist unfortunately. Wishing his family God‘s blessings At this very difficult time.
