I have known Lathon for many years. His Mother and I are best friends of 23 years. This is beyond senseless and didn't need to happen. Having driven I-81 last Fall and the speed limit is too HIGH!!!! My prayers and love go out to Nicole and the J's. Prayers and love go out to Phyllis and Doug. I love you all, Susan

I knew La Thon and his mother a long time ago, he was friends with my son when they were young. I feel so bad for his wife, his kids and his mother and grand-mother. He was such a nice young man, what a waste of a life, especially since the driver of the rig was falling asleep at the wheel.

Prayers and love go to the family and friends. I miss my buddy and friend La-Thon. It was a pleasure and and honor working with you in Broken Pieces band. It's sad also that some of the truckers on I-81 are out of control. This is a very dangerous Interstate that I drove on myself for years and even had a number of close calls. Peace.

When will VA finally figure out they need to do something about I81? Every week there is at least 1 or 2 crashes on it and almost always there is a death.
