Just like my Dad's sudden death, here is another lesson in being prepared, story below (courtesy of the Sun-Sentinel):
The Florida Highway Patrol identified Lester Gallagher, 84, of Palm Beach Gardens, as the bicyclist who died after being struck by a car Sunday on State Road A1A, south of PGA Boulevard.Gallagher was riding south in the bike lane on A1A, when he was rear-ended by a 2006 Sonata driven by Joseph Shields, 77, of Delray Beach, according to the highway patrol report. Shields was suffering from a diabetic seizure, caused by low blood sugar, when he drove into the bicycle lane striking Gallagher's Diamondback 12-speed. Gallagher was knocked off the bicycle, hit the windshield and then the roof before landing on the road in front of the car, which then drove over him, the report said.
Eternal rest grant to him O Lord. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen
