Mrs Bucher did not have on her list that day to injure, maim or take another life. I don't know why the events of that day occurred but I know with every once of my being she would take that day back if she could. I sat with Mrs Bucher shortly after the accident. As we prayed to Daddy for His grace and peace we cried and we cried and we cried. You are correct in that it wasn't her son, nephew, friend, father or brother and no one can feel another person’s pain or sorrow. It is unique to each individual. It is possible however, to grieve over a life that we never knew - knowing that this person was loved by someone, somewhere and that their hearts were breaking. As I read the many beautiful, funny, touching comments about Kevin – in the mist of tears - a smile comes across my heart. It seems as though for such a young person he definitely made a huge impact on a lot of folks and how fortunate you are to have known him. My heart rejoices most of all in that he knew Jesus and by all accounts from his family and friends is certainly with Him in Heaven. May Daddy’s grace and peace surround you as you walk this difficult journey and celebrate the life of Kevin.

Too bad "Daddy' didn't take care of Kevin here on earth. What a bunch of garbage.

Hi Jess. You have every right to express how you feel, to be heard and taken seriously and I have no right to tell you otherwise. In 2006 three people I know were diagnosed with cancer and I lost seven people I dearly loved. While some of those deaths were due to aging two were not. I lost a friend "Becky" two weeks after she gave birth to her first son. She was only 32 and died from a blood clot due to birth. Nearly four months later we lost a friend who died in an accident a day after his 18th birthday. I didn't understand it then and don't profess to understand it now. The one true blessing that came out of the events of 2006 was the deep inner sense of faith that there was someone I could lay that all on and that was God, my Heavenly Daddy. Was it all neat and pretty, heck (replaced with the word I’d like to use) no! There were times of screaming, ranting, panic, anger, questions, did I mention screaming at God. He doesn’t ask for fake relationships and only wishes to hear what is truly in our hearts and I didn’t hesitate to give it to Him.
Kevin must have been a very special person in your life ~ I say this because of the passion to which you write. I wish I had an answer for you as to why things happen, why He sometimes steps in and other times he doesn't. It's a complete mystery to me as it is to you. What is not a mystery is anger. Someone very dear to you is missing and it hurts, it’s unfair and actually it down right stinks ~ although I’d rather use another word. I can’t fix it, can’t make it better, can’t bring him back, can’t make the pain or sorrow go away, can’t make it right nor can I undo the events that took place. The only place I know where to go to find comfort is with Him. Somewhere, somehow Kevin knew that too. His mom expressed it beautifully when she posted “But I know when he was fifteen he gave his life to the lord. So now I know he is in Heaven with the Lord and Grandparents.” It is a place that allows her to cry, to ask questions, to be angry if she wants to be and it’s a place of rest when there are no more tears to cry, a place of peace that surpasses understanding. No, I don’t know Susan, only what she writes and it is written from her heart and my words are written from mine.
Blessings to you

First of all I'd like to say, may Kevin's family have the strength to get through these hard times. Kevin was a wonderful person, I can't believe he's gone. I understand where both sides are coming from. No one knows what happened or whose fault it was. The only people that know what happened are God and the people that were there. It is easy to point the finger and blame whoever you feel is at fault. No matter if it was her fault, don't you think she's going to have to deal with this for the rest of her life? I couldn't imagine being in a car accident whether it was my fault or not and having a fatality. May both sides find peace.

Mark 14:36 - Jesus in the Garden:(NIV) Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will." (KJV) And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.(NLT) Abba, Father,” he cried out,“everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”

Galatians 4:6 (NIV) Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba,[a] Father." (KJV) And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.(NLT) And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out,“Abba, Father.”

Abba (ab-ba) Aramaic. "Daddy", "Papa" or "dear Father", a term of endearment, not as formal as "Av"

Endear - to make dear, esteemed, or beloved

When Adam & Eve sinned it literally separated them from the original relationship with Him. When Jesus died for us, that broken relationship was mended forever. We are freely able to go to Him as His children. Do I love Him with my entire heart - yes! Do I have reverence for Him as the Almighty God, The Great I Am ~ absolutely, there is no other! Am I a child of His - by His Grace, yes! Do I walk intimately with Him as He did with His first children without fear of judgment or condemnation ~ only because of the price Jesus paid can I boldly respond yes. Is He my Heavenly Father, Abba, Daddy & Papa ~ I have so much affection and deep adoration for Him. It is more than the stars in the sky and grains of sands in the oceans. Yes He is.

He is all that and so much more.

Kevin,
I still can't believe you're gone! To know that Jason will never get another phone call from "Billy" kills me.( I will never understand why you called each other that! LOL ) You were truly one of a kind. You had a way of seeing the best in any situation. You took everyday for what it was. These are things that I will take from you. This situation has taught me to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. You never know when you will leave this Earth. I am so thankful that we were able to see you on Thursday. If only we would have known it would be the last time...so many things we would have said! Every day I look at Jason and see the pain in his eyes...He misses you so much. We ALL do!
To those that want to criticize Kevin, get the facts straight. Kevin did everything right, there is nothing he could have done to prevent this awful situation. I don't like how some make comments making it sound like because he was on a bike, it's okay, because he took that risk. That's so wrong. Everyday I get into my CAR, knowing that I am driving a potentially deadly weapon. We need to be more aware of others on the road...I'm not trying to point fingers or make this any harder for either side, I'm just speaking from my heart!
RIP KEVIN!
YOU WILL BE MISSED!

Hi Amanda – I’m touched by the memories you share about Kevin, who he was and the kind of character he had. You are right he had every right to be on that bike that day.

Would I ever ride a bike, even as a passenger – let’s just say a snowball has a better chance in Satan’s home. I travel about 400 miles a week, mostly interstate driving and have been long distance commuting for about 13 years. It isn’t my job it’s just that I don’t live close to where I work. I have seen way too much – the good, bad and ugly side of driving. From tractor trailers drivers to those driving pick-up truck, to sedans, sports cars and even bikes. Most of the time, I can travel to and from without any incidences but there are those times when I grateful to arrive at work or back home.

I must admit, there have been slight, fleeting moments when I wonder what it would be like to ride. Ask any motorcyclist what it is about riding and without hesitation they’ll say,“There’s nothing like it in the world”. I have a brother that rides a Harley – mostly in DC, on 95 of all places. My nephew and a friend from work– a girl by the way – who ride bikes that are more of a racing bike (yup, you guessed it, I have no clue about bikes), friends that ride Honda’s and a few more that ride Harley’s. Do I worry about them when they ride absolutely but no more or no less than when any of my friends or family travel. We live in a broken, imperfect world with imperfect people. Whether we are here for just a day or for a hundred years, each day is precious and as you stated we’ll never know when we will leave this Earth.

Amanda - I’m so deeply, deeply sorry for your loss, for the pain Jason is experiencing as well as Kevin’s family and his many, many friends. I will continue to hold you in prayer.

In His love,
Yvonne

Prayers go out to both families from my heart. Even though Mrs. Bucher is like my mom and it might have been her fault but judging each other isnt the way to go. Im not sidin on either side Im just sayin both family's are going though a rough time right now. I think yes it is very sad that you lost someone and that they are not here anymore but look at it this way he will always be with you and looking over you. He is in a safer better place and with our father. Even though I dont know the other family you guys seem like you guys have great hearts and awesome memories of him. He seemed like he was a great guy and loved his family and friends. R.I.P Kevin I do really think life is two short to hang on to the bad things.

The Buchers are very deceite people, I have known them for twenty years or more. And if you knew anything about them you would know how saddened they are. By the way who made any of us the judge and jury. It is not for us to decide any persons punishment in life. That is up to a higher power. My heart goes out to both families, they are both living in HELL because of this tragic ACCIDENT.
