Now we can make it seven fatalities on Galloway roads since the beginning of November. I just can only hope that we all can stop this trend sooner rather than later. My prayers go out to his family.

Not walking in a highway at 1:30 AM on the downside of a hill at a curve would help.

Driving below the speed limit at night would also help.

Sad to hear. Walking in the middle of the night on Route 9 isn't a very safe idea. Many people are driving to or from a job or a night out.

All of us who have had the 'awesomeness' of knowing you will miss you dearly. You harmonica will always ring softly through our hearts. And that smile and laugh will always be remembered. xoxoxox
