So very sorry to hear that sad news Sherry. Please accept my condolences. My heart goes out to that young man's family and to your son and his friends.
A few years ago, my husband and I were returning to our car with our grocery cart and an OLD man (86) hit his accelerator instead of his brake and hit my husband, bypassed me (and I was on the other side of my hubby) and hit the guy walking next to me, threw him onto the hood of the car and ran into the side of the supermarket. Thank GOD my husband was not badly injured, nor was the young man next to me. Although if he hadn't jumped onto the hood he would have been crushed. We could all have been killed. I am all for testing these people after age 75 or sooner. They complain about teens on the road, but I think some of these old folks are more of a hazzard.
I would NEVER move to FL!!!!
