  1. This was a very nice man. I just spoke with him yesterday. The company he works for was scheduled to work on my property today. He and the owner were going to do the work themselves. I am so very sad to hear of this and his tragic passing. My condolences to the family, his coworkers, and I am sure his many friends.

  2. the person driving the van will get a “ticket ” how about bringing murder charges againist her
