My mothers cousin who would have only been 45 today died from a gruesome motorcycle accident before he turned 21 and him and my mother were really close.
I dont think she has ever fully grasped or gotten over his death.

My own father almost lost his life in a similar motorcycle accident on the highway but walked away just with some brain damage. He became really OCD after the crash and has a really poor memory as well as hearing issues. I tend to think the accident was the cause.

My own brother almost died while performing at a motocross race and was in the hospital for weeks.
He suffered a severe concussion, memory loss, and broke his clavicle.

Our family has always played with large toys and still pay the price of it these days.

Jet skis, jeep flipping, four wheeler racing as a child....yeah I dont know how I'm alive.

Theres something so different about a death due to a motorcycle accident, I'm not sure what it is but it's almost more tragic.
Maybe it's because a motorcycle represents freedom and when an accident happens the ideal is completely flipped. Im not sure...

Either way condolences for his family, blood or otherwise ❤

I am very sorry, Karl. I hate motorcycles. My daughter lost a very good friend, someone she had dated, about two years ago to a motorcycle accident. He was even younger than she is and she is now 27. He was not on alcohol or drugs, which knowing him was one of the first things I suspected. He had been so excited to get that motorcycle. He was living for it for ages.

My prayers will be going out to you and your family. Losing someone young to an accident is especially bitter.

Sending a request to the universe to give Karl and his family a break. Too much grief in such a short time.

Karl, condolences to your family and all those around him.

I have zero respect for any news that shows that sort of thing. We had a kid in middle school run over by a school bus. From that day, I have had very strong feelings towards any media that dares disrespect the family like that.

Thank you everyone! *hugs*
I found out that he had just got the bike and hadn't ridden one in a long time.

Thank you everyone.
The funeral is later today(Saturday) after much agonizing Im not going to go. My breathing is still not the good(o2 drop with activity).
There is also going to be a lot of younger people who have been out partying in large groups but if I was feeling better id still go.
