      I saw the nice memorial that your family/friends set up at the intersection of the accident. It’s a very nice memorial. I’ve been biking this commute over 4 years and crossing that same intersection. I didn’t know you, but we may have passed each other frequently. I’ll be thinking of you during my commutes for many days to come.
