I witnessed this accident this morning. The car passed me doing well over 100MPH in a no passing zone. My condolences go out to the family..... please share this with the young drivers in your family.

I can't still believe that you've been taken from us. I know we weren't as close since you left Leesburg. And I regret not taking the chances to hangout with you. I'll never forget you. I have so many great memories with you in pre-school and middle school. Some during highschool as well. I love you! I'll miss you. You won't be forgotten. All my love goes out to your family from mine. I'll be seeing you. I love you.

we werent the closest of friends but we had our share of good times together at parties. you were a great guy who was loved by many and hated by few. you have made a difference in a lot of your friends lives cuz now everyones thinking twice about putting on their seatbelt and driving safe. no one knows why it had to be you to leave && wishes it wasn't cuz they still want you down here to party it up. you will NEVER be forgotten by anyone, we will all see you someday && party all over :) my prayers go out to your family && friends
