I’m married to a cousin of Phyllis and am glad to hear she’s doing better. We’ve lost a good man in Jason and he will truly be missed. To the young lady involved and anyone stating this was just an accident and NOT reckless driving, common sense will tell anyone looking at the scene that his girl wasn’t paying any attention. But let’s say you were paying attention then you would have noticed the red light and the car in the intersection. SOMETHING had to have you distracted for you NOT to see the red light or a car in the middle of the intersection…texting, talking on the phone etc. For you or any of your followers to state otherwise is totally BS and an insult to Jason’s memory as far as that goes. I believe in GOD and I do think that Jason has been called home which is in GOD’s plan. Nothing takes place in this world without the HIS say so. Jason is in a state of peace now and the only one’s hurting at this point are his loved ones. So everyone keep THEM in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks, D.O. DOUBLE G
