PART 2: MY RESPONSE TO COMMENTOR:@commentor: ya know I read your comment last evening at about 630 pm & I was SHOCKED at your response. I did not rush to respond cuz I didn't want to look at your remarks at face value-I needed time to think about "what would make any human being think so cold hearted as your comment was"? 'Why- would ya think that way"?- well I came up with 1 solution & that being>>If you personally know Larry & his family & you know for sure what his health conditions truly are & you know his family allows him to drive with these health conditions then & only then could any person comment as you did!! But if you just assume you know the situation you made yourself look like a complete jackas-!! Further more if you know Larry/fam & his health conditions & you know he drives & you were so concerned about it then WHY DIDN'T you relate your concerns to his fam & or DMV so something could of been done about it..

If it was a perfect world there would be no sickness and no accidents. But it is not a perfect world and we have to deal with problems as they occur. The cemetary damage can be repaired, cars can be replaced and we should be grateful that there was no serious injuries.

I don't care if you like it or not. I hear stories everyday of older people driving that should not be driving and their families don't have the guts to take away the car and the license. This is what happens. Lucky there were no deaths of the driver causing the accident or someone else. Grow some and take away the car!!!!

a big WOW @commentor! because of his age you think you can judge? what about the young ones who choose to drive and drink? what about the young ones who fall asleep at the wheel traveling home from a vacation? ohhh wait because it wasn't their age it's OK? you leave Larry alone! you don't know him obviously, nor his family! hes a good man, been through*****and back again, he doesn't need to see your harsh age discrimination comments!

Let's be honest people, if it wasn't for the voting of lobbying power of the elderly we would have had retesting years ago.

@COMMENTOR:WHAT IF??? what if Larry had a massive heart attack? or a stroke? maybe he got stung by a bee & had a severe reaction!! We don't know cuz we were not a fly on his windshield!! You rush to assume he is a sickly man whose family don't have the balls to take the car from him. How dare you!! He could be a healthy man who got stricken with a sudden sickness as mentioned previously in my comment & caused him to crash.I have seen ppl IN THEIR 80'S AND 90'S SPRY AS HECK & THEY STILL DRIVE.THEY DON'T LOOK OR ACT A DAY OVER 50.And I've seen younger ppl 40's/50's who look tore down & look like they are 80's/90's who drive who need to be taking a taxi-or walking.<<They have multiple health issues & can barely walk/breathe/mobilize..So until you sit down with Larrys DR & family & know the real deal with his health I think it's best ya keep your rude obnoxious remarks to yourself.He is not the 1st one to fall ill while driving & he won't be the last

I am 71 and just drove from Dunkirk to Atlanta and all headstones along the way are intact. Larry is a resposible person. I feel sure he had some medical problem. Time will tell the story. I'm sure a driving test would not have prevented this accident unless he had the problem during the test.

I will repost this here in case. From your remarks commentor I figure you are between 16 and about 25, no job, no hopes and no one likes you. And we can all see why. Now gram your smartphone, your 6 pack and tear into me.
