I do not know this boy, but I do know I his family. I asked out of concern because my children are this age and wanted to prepare them if it was someone they knew. My oldest one did know him, and my youngest one had seen him at her job some.
I pray for the loved ones, family and friends. I pray they find comfort in God.
I appreciate the ones who spoke of his last moments, and your tenderness with him. If it was my child it would comfort me to know he wasn't alone. It also make me very happy to know you spoke of God in these moments. Who knows, he might have needed to know him. I hope his family knows of his last moments and the kindness of strangers.
Love, peace, and light.

Melinda, thank you for sharing that. I know Stacy will appreciate knowing what you did for and said to Caleb. I'm sure it is a great comfort to know he wasn't alone.

I hope that if anyone in my family is ever in an accident, that someone like you will be there for them.

all I can say about the loss of such a young man is Austin finally has a friend back with him. The last time I seen Caleb, he was sittin in front of me at Austins funeral grieving the loss of a friend. The next time I will see him will be at his own funeral. Young people, our youth is minimizing right before our eyes. In the last year, our community has lost 5 kids ages 21 and under. Be grateful that u were allowed to see another day. These 5 werent so fortunate. You could be next. Get to know Christ as your personal savior. Get on your knees and pray for this family and the young people of our community. Instead of criticizing an already bad situation, comfort it. I pray that if I or my family is ever the one laying there, there will be fine citizens that stop to comfort and care for us. Stacy, Corey, Kevin, his niece, his dad, friends and family have all taken a tremendous loss and I would hate to know the shoe was on the other foot and it was your loved one being criticized. So what if he was speeding, so what if the factory worker was at fault, the fact remains that a mother is grieving, a brother is grieving, and friends and family need not see ignorance from our society. I will pray for the lost and careless souls of our community as well as the family of this young man. Love u all! RIP CALEB forever in our hearts pretty boy!

Could tell that. Not saying hecqas at fault in anyway. Just meaning he obviously was the one traveling and the truck was the one pulling out. And speed (even 40 to 45) had a terrible impact on the motorcycle and driver.

I got the chance to meet this young man when he was staying down in florida. He was a very nice young man. My heart goes out to his family and friends. R.i.p... Another young life taken way too soon.

My heart goes out to Stacy. She was such a rock to my sister and brother in law when Austin passed. Caleb was there as well, almost everyday. I sincerely hope that Austin was there to welcome Caleb. RIP Caleb. My kids and I will always remember you. You will never be forgotten.

Without You,
The stars are dimmer
The world less right
The clouds are thinner
The moon's less bright
The sky is darker
The earth less green
My heart is starker
The sun less seen!

May you and Austin fly high with the angels and hold a place for us all. RIP sweet boy!

Let's remember that lives are being upset on both sides. This accident & death are not only impacting the person who passed away & his family; it is also a great impact on the other driver and her family. Think about how an accident you caused unintentionally has irrevocably changed all these people's lives. How would that make you feel? How would you feel, knowing that every day you have to remember that you accidentally ended a life? Let's try to remember to be compassionate for everyone. And to let each other know how much we care as often as possible.

Saw it after the fact. Looked like he was traveling south on Hwy 1. A truck pulled out from the factory ( use to be Airtherm). He must have been going fast- the motorcycle was really demolished. This was my understanding from passing by. Police and ambulance was still there at the time. Sure didn't know he died.
Sorry for the loss of such a young man, but do you think the driver of the truck got up thinking that morning when I decide later in the day to get lunch I'm going run over anyone who gets in my way. I'm sure neither family will ever be the same again prayers for all involved and may God lead all of you to a place of peace

No one implied it was intentional or negligent or anything else. Just made an observation and someone was upset saying The implication was his fault. Now you want to imply that I am blaming someone. Not that at all. Facts are facts. I'm sure no one want an accident to happen. That's why it's called an accident. And I'm sure the driver of the truck is really hurting too.

God Bless you for your kindness, as a Mother I would find comfort in knowing you were there if I could not have been

I held his hand and stroked his arm and reassured him that help was on the way...that I could hear the sirens coming and to try to focus on that....I pulled the strap gently away from his mouth so he could breath better and he seemed to relax more and he slowly opened his eyes and searched for my voice. I told him of Gods love for him and that paramedics were there now for him....of course I backed away and let them do their job. Just please, if you happen upon an accident like this, always try to comfort the victim...all I could think about was that this young man was some mothers' son and if it happened to my own son I'd want him comforted as much as possible....my heart is so heavy tonight for Caleb's family but I want them to know that their loved one was held as much as I possibly could during the time right after the accident up until help arrived. Rest in peace and condolences to Caleb and his family.

I agree with this. Accidents happen everyday and the one who caused the accident has to live with this for the rest of their life. Such a sad sad thing for EVERYONE involved. This could have happened to ANYONE.

I just want to say that I attended Caleb's funeral today and have never been part of a more memorable service. It was very powerful! Several young people were saved today (around 7 or 8 if I'm not mistaken). I am so sorry for the tragic loss if Caleb, but his death has saved souls! So incredible! What a legacy to leave behind!! I know that must be of some comfort to Caleb's family. Caleb's life and death has made a difference! God Speed Caleb!!

Probably would have helped if rida would have apologized to stacy or the family but instead she sat in her truck saying it wasn't her fault. I don't car if she was sorry or not , she should have atleast attempted to show some sympathy but instead she hires an attorney the next day , oh and she had meth in her system....... sounds like man slaughter to me.

This is the first time for me to actually log onto Topix to view this thread. I thank you all who have posted kind words and shown support for Caleb's family. Anyone who knew Caleb at all, knew that if he loved you, he would do anything in this world for you. It broke his heart to learn of Austin's death and he spent every morning for nearly 2 months taking Kathie a cup of coffee or cappuccino and sitting with her for hours at a time. He came to my house most of those days when he left Kathie and he would cry with me and tell me how much he loved me and that he never wants me to suffer the loss that Kathie did. Little did he know that 6 months and 4 days later, it would happen. I miss my little boy, my moon!
God Bless you!
Stacy
