Thank you so much for your supportive comments. I think the important thing to realize both in my loss, and in the police officer's loss, as well as many others I'm sure, is that it can happen to anyone. Whether we are driving a SUV, a motorcycle, or are rushing through our day only half paying attention none of us are immune to causing such a tradegy. I think that because we drive so often we become automatic behind the wheel. We only half pay attention. We have alot of close calls. It can happen to anyone. One little mistake can cause the life of another to be taken away, or our own life, or the life of our loved ones. It is a very scary thought. I think that cars and motorcycles are perfectly capable of existing on the same roadway. Roads are designed to accomodate both. However, we have to be aware that the peices of metal we take for granted as common everyday devices are very easily turned to weapons in the blink of an eye, unfortunatly often unkowingly.
Mostly, my heart goes out to the families of everyone who has ever lost a loved one. It is horrible, and heart breaking when you lose someone who was such a wonderful part of your life. But anger only pulls you further away from the memory of your loved one. Anger only closes you off to the love of others. Enjoy everyday of your life. Enjoy your loved ones, and your not so loved ones even! Life is a beautiful gift, and when it's over, regrets mean nothing.
Cincy, remeber Rory for who he was. Remember the moments which are dear to you. Focus on the good. I think you will find peace. I pray you find peace, because you deserve it. Life is just too short.

Tavares Police do not stop at stop signs and speed often. They also do not stop those that run stop signs. They also do not control out of control bikers.
If they did their little part maybe the 4 wheeler they stop may pay more attention to two wheelers. You may even cause some drivers to fix head and tail lights that have been out for years.
Trailers are a another story little or no lights. Bottom line the Police is a part of the do nothing attitude, and a part of the reason a person lost their life. They have the authority to stop some of this.

People here cannot work and are paid along with given free Medicare because they not able to work, they get ANGERY.
They do not like to be told what to do so they are treated for that out of control Anger. BUT THEY DRIVE around all night and hang out on their welfare money. If you are drawing money for a mental disorder especially out of control anger, seems you should unable to drive.
This is fashionable here among the young. I know several.

Your point was not of any value to this posting. She makes a very good point.
