    RickN--Thank you much for providing the link. It was indeed who i was thinking of. Its a sad accident that happened to a very hard working bright young man. If i'm not mistaken their were actually two young men. Very sad time for this area as they had another young student die from a seperate car accident in the recent past. Prayers and thoughts with the families. Parents are not supposed to bury their children. As a father of two young boys one being a teen i can not imagine.--Matt

    My condolences for the families. I have only one son who does not live at home anymore and who will turn 21 in a few weeks. There is not a day that goes by that I am worried that this may happen to me. As one of the post above said We are not supposed to bury our children. We should be granted the pliviledge of watching them mature into adults and suppling us with grandchildren to enjoy. I feel very sad for the family. I wish them the very best through this tring time. God Bless, Jim Bradbury

    Justin was a very fine young man, very polite and a good shooter. I had the pleasure of shooting with him at the US Open.

    Justin also liked to hunt. He shared some good hunting and duck hunting stories on the Mississipi.

    I will miss him, my condolence to the family.

    My condolences. Sad story, trying to save an animal and they lost their life. Says allot about their character. I'm sure they will be missed.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends. My wife and I grew up a few hours from Nashville, IL and used to travel the backroads going to antique stores.

    God Bless,
