Default Far Too Young

Today has been very sad day for my girlfriend and me. Her 17 year old nephew was killed, along with another 17 year old when her nephew lost control of his car and ran in to a pole. It happened Friday night at 10:00 pm, we received a call from her sister, (her nephews mother), at 1:30 am. He apparently was driving at a high speed when he lost control of the car, no drugs or alchohol were involved. He was a great kid, although I only saw him at parties and when we occassionally visited her sister, I'm feeling very sad.
You hear about these things happening all the time, but you don't realize the impact it has until it happens to someone you know.
God Bless you Johnny.

sorry fro your loss,i recently had 2 friends, well not best friends but someone i knew and they knew me and i would see them around sometimes and say hi, pass away. they were my age (18)
it was not too emotional for me, being we weren't too close, but it sort of shook me at how young they were and how young i still am. it just made me think of how much time i still had, but yet how short it can end up being.
yes, way too young.
they are in my prayers.

I think sadly everyone knows someone who's died in a car crash. It's just one of those things. I'm gonna be doing automotive engeneering next year (with luck) so i hope that one day i might be able to help put a stop to such wastage. It's just such a crap way to die.

Ya, nothing peaceful about it. Any type of violent death gets to me.

Sorry for your loss Whitedrummer.
