Ode To Harry ...
Harry got in his car
And turned the key
Started up and headed up the L.I.E.
Too cheap to get a real car
Had a Volkswagon Rabbit
Harry's cheap habit
Cause the trucker couldn't stop
So the driver just took aim
And when he hit Harry
Harry burst into flames
You're dead now Harry
And you can't come back
You'd still be alive if
you drove a Cadillac
Classic M.O.D.!!!

P.S. IT WASNT FOGGY AT ALL THATS B.S. I JUST WENT TO WHERE HE PASSED AND A LIMO DRIVER PULLED OVER AND TOLD ME THAT IT WAS CLEAR. HE STOPPED WHEN IT HAPPENED. HE WAS DRIVING ALL NIGHT. IT MIGHT OF BEEN FOGGY BUT NOT LOW FOG. I HOPE YOVONIS FAMILY SUES J.KINGS FOOD SUPPLY FOR HIS DEATH!
I stopped at the time of this accident. I did not see the accident occur but I was there with some other people who stopped before the police even arrived and it wasnt foggy. It was an awful scene and my prayers go out to Yovanis family.

TO: OH WELL SHIT HAPPENS AND THE PUPPETMASTER:

I do NOT understand why you both would leave such horrible posts on this page where people are pouring their hearts out as they have lost someone who was very close to them.

It is dispicable to leave a post, to say that Yovani's daughter, Destiny,would "find another daddy". What a disgusting thing to say! Yovani would speak about Destiny and his face would light up and he would proudly show the tattoo that he had for her, he loved her with all of his heart.

And for the post left to state that both the driver of the truck and Yovani were both "illegals"...I do not know anything about the driver of the truck that killed Yovani, but one thing is for sure that Yovani WAS a legal citizen of the United States. It is a very biased and ignorant thing to state that anyone who has a spanish last name is illegal.

Both of you need to grow up! Save your assinine, disrespectful, hateful, immature posts for other websites that you troll around on- it was NOT APPROPRIATE for you to post things that like on a page that is HONORING the life of someone who will be missed, and sending condolences to the ones that he left behind, who will miss him with all of their hearts until they are reunited again.

SHAME ON YOU BOTH!!! THERE ARE MANY OTHER THINGS THAT I COULD SAY TO BOTH OF YOU, BUT I AM BEING RESPECTFUL TO YOVANI AND THOSE THAT ARE POSTING ON THIS PAGE TO REMEMBER HIM, THEY DO NOT NEED TO READ THE FOUL LANGUAGE THAT I COULD HAVE USED TO GET MY POINT ACROSS.
LEAVE THIS PAGE ALONE AND GO LEAVE YOUR POSTS ON SOME OTHER PAGE. YOU BOTH SOULD BE ASHAMED, AND YOU BOTH LOOK LIKE IGNORANT ASSHOLES.

To Yovani's daughter Destiny, his family, and his family of friends, my heart goes out to all you.

To Yovani, while you and I were not close, I will always remember your smile and kind nature, and how sweet it was to listen to you talk about your daughter with love and pride. She will NOT find another daddy, and I'm sure that everyone around her will help her to remember the father that loved her with all of his heart.

Your friends are aching...Brett is devastated...but as they cry tears of sorrow for the friend that was taken away too soon, they will always remember all the wonderful qualities that you possessed. Rest in peace Yovani.

I can NOT believe how some of you have the nerve to come up on here and say such horrible things about Yovani...someone you NEVER knew. I am the 1st one that responded with the "Anonymous" about him having the biggest heart, that was me...and yes Yovani had the biggest heart. He was always smiling, laughing and enjoying life! He was the greatest friend you could ask for. It is TRUE what the other poster said, Yovani would give you the last penny in his pocket. if you were in need of something and he could help you out, he would help you in a heartbeat!! I am so heartbroken that he is gone, he will be missed soo much.
I am confused though. All I have heard is there was sooo much fog on the LIE at the time of crash, what is the correct story? some say there was NO fog? what really happened, that caused him to stop? in the middle of the expressway?

Nice, and I hope there is a nice pole or guard rail you can wrap yourself around. What ever you do don't swerve for any tree. They've taken enough abuse from idiots this year.

Wow, you people really don't got anything else to do but sit up here and talk bad about a person you never knew. Is this how cold hearted you are when someone you KNOW passes away? THIS could've happened to ANYONE!!! Yovani did NOT do anything wrong !!! If you don't have anything positive to say then don't leave any messages on here. I'm sure if it were YOUR family or close friend you would not want to be seeing all the negative comments!!
