I just lost my 25 yr brothermy only sibling to a motorcycle accident on June 16, 2008. I am so sorry you have to deal with this pain, nobody should ever have to go through what our families are going through now. I just wanted to tell you that I am very sorry for your loss. If anyone ever needs to talk to someone who really understand. Please feel free to look me and give me a call.
