I am so sorry for his family and for my daughter,Brandy Maxwell and her family. Brandy was like a second Mother to Casey..he even called her Mom. I know that everyone that knew Casey loved him. He was so easy to love. Casey will be missed by many. RIP Casey!

Well, we made it through 2

Well, we made it through 2 comments before someone had to make a remark about the cyclist's driving history and that he "didn't take those warnings seriously." You could have just stopped at "neighborhood" and then said "I am so sorry for him and his family." Let the family make its own judgment call.

It doesn't matter what he has

It doesn't matter what he has done or got arrested for, the fact is he is gone now and this is no time to criticize. As a close friend of the family I know they are going through a very hard time right now. So can we just keep this positive please?

Rusty was a great guy. He, like all of us, made mistakes in his life. But we are all human.And no matter what he did or didn't do he still has left a family behind who now have to deal with this lost and try to carry on in this life here on earth without him. May God comfort the family.

Very sad. I hope the

Very sad. I hope the motorcyclist who was driving like a loon in front of me on Belair Road Friday afternoon will read this article and wise up to how dangerous motocycles can be. What a tragedy. If nothing else, maybe some good can come of this to make cyclists drive extra careful when behind the handlebars of a motorized bike. Prayers for the friends and family. Losing anyone is hard, but at this time of year, it has to add to the pain.

Little Lamb, you

Little Lamb, you misunderstood what happened. He was ejected from his motorcycle when he hit a car and THEN his motorcycle hit the wall. But you should be worried about his family and not that wall. Pray for his family to receive comfort. It is very sad and tragic. A Mother and a Father have lost their son, maybe siblings have lost their brother, and maybe a girlfriend or a wife have lost him as well. Pray for them and stop worrying about the wall!

Russell's family is hurting

Russell's family is hurting tonight due to their loss. Yes his mother, dad, sister and brothers (2) and a 3 year old daughter (who will never know her daddy except through the pictures and stories from his family), this was an accident, the wall will be there tomorrow and many years to come, unlike Russell (Casey). The last thing his family needs is to read such comments. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone, this was said for a reason, there is NO ONE on Earth who is perfect. I can tell you, his family could use all the thoughts and prayers they can get during this time. His little sister is in severe pain, his mother and dad are as well along with his brothers. So please, have some consideration for them, if you have something negative to say, say it to a friend not on here. Also, just remember, you never know when it maybe you or a dear friend or even a family member in a tragic accident.

A Family Friend

Many prayers to the family of

Many prayers to the family of this young man, I can only imagine the pain of losing a child and to his parents I am truly sorry and my heart aches for you. Gab, you are correct in your comment and people should be more sensitive to families at times like this as they are the ones left to suffer and try to come to terms with what has happened.

As Russell's mother, I'd like

As Russell's mother, I'd like to thank you for the kind words and prayers. He did leave behind a large family (sister, 2 brothers, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and a daughter). The hardest thing anyone will have to do is to say goodbye to a child. He should still be here. So much has been learned about the circumstances of the 2 back to back accidents since the above article was posted. In short, Russell was taken from us by the driver in the 2nd accident who ran over him shortly after he collided with another vehicle. He could still be with us if she had been more careful. Let's let the courts handle the blame and let this comment feed be what it was intended for...positive words of incouragement and prayers. Please be alert whenever you are driving. Cycle riders have the same rights to drive on the roads as any other vehicle. No matter what you're driving it's your obligation to drive cautiously.
