    I'd like to reiterate what LOCALFAMILY said. Life is fragile. Imagine being Lee, home for less than a month after being in San Francisco to help his daughter deal with the loss of his ex-wife, her mother, who died too young. What was he thinking as he drove down 65, clearly out of his way? It was late, it was dark... I thank everyone for their kind words, and thank those who tried to help. I hope to try to make sense of this. I hope God will let me know why he took both of my parents within months of each other, way too soon. I promise to make anyone driving me down 65 to take the corners slowly. Signed: Lee's Daughter

    Our condolences go out to the family. This is yet another reminder that life is fragile. Our thoughts and prayers go with you. We were driving home on hwy65 last night and saw the truck turned upside down between several pines. There were two officers on the scene. We asked the officers if there was anything that we could do to help. They had not yet located the driver. We had recognized the truck as belonging to a local. Soon after a state trooper followed by an ambulance and a few other county police cars arrived on scene. We hope to hear more on this story. Some of those curves on 65 are pretty dangerous. I wish there was something more we could have done to help. It is a tragedy that a life has been lost.
