No parent should have to see his son lying on a paved road after an accident, knowing that there is absolutely nothing I can do to save his life, “said Charles Stander, Burry Stander’s father.” It is definitely the worst time of my life. Words can not even begin to describe how it feels when it happens. It was terrible.

    Hi. I am wondering if you would be interested in doing a
    website link swap? I see your blog: http://bicyclemaintenance.
    wordpress.com/2013/01/05/burry-stander-memorial-foundation-to-be-established/ and my blog are based mostly around the same subject matter.
    I’d love to switch links or perhaps guest author a article for you. Here is my personal e-mail: toby.penny@gmail.com. Please be sure to contact me if you’re even slightly interested.
