Sorry to hear that. This is tough to hear and now it's once or twice a year that a cyclist I have been in communications with has been hit and killed.

Please keep us posted. That happened twice in my area to local cyclists, no driver got more than a ticket for a few $000, Failed to yield right of way?

Thanks you and take care.

Oh, Doug! My heart goes out to you and your family. What a horrible thing.

I hope the police get a lead and catch whoever did this to your dad.

So sad...

...and then in the middle of everything, you realize you're alive right now, and the time to live is right now!
