  1. i see you pick and choose what comments you allow ill be sure to post it all over social media

  2. It was a fully insured bike by Progressive insurance. It had a license plate, turn signals, lights. Everything was legal. Have driven this street many times since the accident. If the person who hit my sons was paying attention he would still be with us. To say in the police report that you didn’t even know what you hit shows you where not paying attention. Only God knows why things happened that day. Ryan you are missed everyday and forever will be too infinity and beyond.
