So sorry to hear about your "counsin". It's a shame that not "everone" can go to school and get a real education, "becae" if they would, they would learn how to speak intelligently. Something for "u" and "ur" friends to think about.
Seriously, I am very saddened to hear about your cousin. I am a neighbor of his on Spring St. He was a very good friend.
RIP Ernie, may you finally find peace in Heaven.
Your also a jackass! Couldn't you save that little part about the speaking correctly? Your a moron who says your sad, but before you say that, you have to condem someone on the way they speak. Did it ever occur to you that the cousin was upset when he was typing. Get a real life you loser!!!

And to the cousin, May you find strength to get thru your days ahead. My condolences to you and his family

For God Sakes, there was a fatal accident and all some people can think about it being late and the inconvenience this was causing them.
To Earnestís family and friends I am so sorry for your loss. I also pray for the tractor trailer driver who now has to live with this forever.
What I try to always keep in mind when someone does that or is riding my tail on the highway is maybe they are trying to get to a hospital for themselves or a loved one, you never know the reason someone may be flooring it in traffic. The majority of the time they simply have a led foot but there are times when they too are on their way to a loved one involved in an emergency. And let's not go into why didn't they take an ambulance why did they give so & so the finger.....it does happen sometimes. Remember, not every person speeding is an asss, sometimes they actually are on the way to something important. DISCLAIMER: This is no way justifies speeding it is simply something to keep in mind before we jump the gun assuming why the person is doing such a thing.

Ernest Owens was my coworker in both of my last two jobs. I hadn't seen him in three months since I was laid off.
He was working 2nd shift (3:30-12). He used to drive a little over an hour to and from work at least five days a week. What I heard is that he was feeling sick and had to go home. So I take it he must have passed out or something.
So sad, this is the second coworker and friend I loose within a month.
RIP Earnest, best wishes to his family.

Thank You wrote:
I would just like to thank the people who caused this accident and everyone for holding up traffic for so long last night, on a busy rush hour. I was driving home at 6:15PM and as soon as I got onto Rt. 33 north, traffic was slowed to a crawl. I knew it was bad when three giant tow trucks drove up the shoulder. Then, all the back roads were backed up really bad too. This was all on a busy rush hour Friday night. I was late for my dinner. Next time, please pick a better time to have a major accident like this one or pick a less travelled road!
You have to be the most selfish person I have ever met. Someone just died and you have the balls to complain that you were late for dinner. Too bad you didn't choke on your dinner!

How about feeling some compassion for this man's loved ones and friends. Have you ever lost someone close to you? Because if you didn't then you are in for a heck of an awakening if and when it happens. I lost my brother many years ago to an accident and I would do anything to get him back today. So you should be ashamed of yourself for being selfish, Scr*w your dinner! Karma is a bit*h.

So when you get in an accident I hope you remember all of the nasty things you said about this accident! Man you are such a jerk!

I understand what you are saying and have been in that situation, however when there are multiple fire trucks, cop cars, ambulances and medics all over the place, the last thing anyone should be doing is trying to put someone elseís life in jeopardy. There was absolutely nowhere for this truck to go unless he planned to run over the medics. If there was an emergency, which I hope there wasnít, he could have drove the shoulder instead of trying to cause another accident.

Earnest was my brother in-law, but I considered him a brother. He was one of the kindest, most genuine people you could ever meet. He was funny as hell, to boot. He was loved more than anyone can imagine and will be greatly missed.

To the person who "thanked" my brother for "causing" your inconvenience - I hope you never have to handle the type of tragedy that has blindsided our family. You must be a pretty miserable person to have such hate and coldness in your heart. Your comment knocked the wind right out of me. I will pray for you.

Are you sure that this was the same Ernest Owens? You mention that he had a job, but his obituary says otherwise:

http://www.legacy.com/mcall/Obituaries.asp...

Did he have a real job or did you maybe get the wrong guy? I really hope that you are taking about an Ernest Owens who had a job, and not this guy, because it looks like the poor soul who was killed on Friday may have not had a job or they just left it out of his death notice.

Either way, G-d rest his departed soul in heaven above.

I pray that someone who actually knew Ernest Owens reads this and cares enough to contact me.
My name is Ashley Davis, formally Ashley Owens, and I am the younger sister of Ernest. Those who knew Ernest would know that he and his siblings were all placed in foster care at a young age. I havent seen Ernest since I was 12 years old and wasnt informed about the accident until weeks later because i have been away at college. I cant seem to get anyone at the foster agency to talk to me about anything that happened so I am hoping that someone with a heart sees this and contacts me as soon as possible. please. i am begging.
you can email me at adavis@uga.edu
please.

sincerely,
ashley
