Thanks everyone this really means a lot to me and my family. Having never been through anything like this it is just a guessing game trying to figure out what to do. My brother just got into town so now I have a little more help with mom.

Just looked at the time and it looks to be right at 24 hours since it happened...

Thanks for everything, Devin

Sorry for the loss.
May the condolences and comments of those who knew your father ease the inevitable feeling of sadness you and your family will experience.

Sorry for your loss. I went through a pretty similar experience Dec 2008. My father was killed by some tweakers out for a joyride. The driver had no license and went to jail the following day for a different crime. He sat there for 2 weeks before requesting a lawyer to give his statement. When a tragedy like this occurs everything seems surreal and never-ending. I can only say that time with family and friends seems to be the only way to help with these things.
Thoughts and prayers to you and your family....

Sayonara, Tomo. May God bless your family and bring them healing.

Devin, at least he was killed doing something he love. Not much comfort right now, but that's all I got.

Oh my God,
I'm am so sorry to hear that.
I checked this thread because I had the same kind of accident last year and the car drivers' ins co. is fighting it all the way.
That kind of accident is one of the worst situations.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss.
My heart goes out to you and yours.

So sad.

I'm not really sure what I can say to make you feel better. I am so sorry, you're in my prayers.

Terribly sorry to hear about this. These situations are so frustrating, and there really aren't works to make it better. You are in good care here, this really is like a big family. Not sure where I'd be without the support of people here.
Across the country on the kindness of strangers and the strangeness of friends (and a DR650).
