it's just not fair...so many bad people in the world, that still continue to draw breath, and then you read something like this...a family man, his wife, and his children, lives taken and survivors devestated...there's no rhyme or reason...it's simply more evidence that fate and the powers that be, don't play favorites...my heart goes out to him and his surviving family, as well as the family of the other driver...fault is up to other people to sort out, and in the end, it won't solve anything...both families are hurting... blink.gif
