    Wow reading through these comments made me sad, sad for the family that has to read the snide stupid comments from inconsiderate people. It made me mad to see that so many of you are so heartless. She hit a guardrail and fell im gonna guarantee she had internal injuries that had nothing to do with helmet use or lack of. There were many fatal accidents this weekend that involved cars to but hmm were they all wearing seatbelts. i know somebody who was on a motorcycle who was cut off wearing pants and a jacket and was cut off hes in a wheelchair now because he lost his leg. My dad rides and doesnt wear a helmet he got cutoff one day by a guy talking on his phone, no helmet my dad periphreal was better to see what was happening, pulled up next to the guy and yelled at him. Everybody just needs to pay attention to their surroundings when driving. Slow down and enjoy life. My condolences to this family. Read before reacting with omg she wasnt wearing a helmet!!!!

    HOW DARE YOU! I knew this woman. She has a daughter and a grandson who love her. She is admired and respected by us. She was lively and fun. She worked hard and lived life to the fullest. All you who made hateful remarks should be ashamed of yourselves. All of us make choices with which others can find fault. But where is your common decency? Where is your respect for her grieving family? Your thoughtless comments are sickening. I hope you are never in a position to lose someone you love so suddenly and feel the mind bending pain that takes your breath away. I hope you never have to sit on the other end of a phone and be told that the only person who has been there for you all your life won't be coming back. It is disgusting that you think so much of your own opinions that you feel the need to express them publicly and with so little regard for the pain you cause. If you can't send your thoughts to her family, then best to keep your mouths shut and your hands off your computers.

    Mr X you are a useless and a waste of space. I would gladdly let you take my moms place. It's uneducated idiots like you that should be removed from this earth. Not a 58 year old counselor who has helped so many children through there problems and through the death of their parents. Mr X I would not worry about dying to soon god will leave you on earth to punish you and when you do go you won't be in the same place my mother is now because I am sure there is a place in hell reserved for you. Helment or no helmet when you hit a guard rail at who knows how many miles an hour your time is up. Good bless the loser is life like people who sit around and made useless comments about something they know nothing about!! And for those of you that are true motorcycle riders RIDE ON with or without your helmet.

    I drove by this accident yesterday, I am visiting here from Calif, I was a freaking nervous wreck on your freeways the way people cut you off, NO PATIENCE just to get a car ahead. I came close to getting rear ended, side swiped and cut off from impatient drivers. Helmet or no Helmet doesn't matter, a life was lost. That was her free choice not to wear a helment and My deepest sympathy to her family. They say seatbelts save lives I had a relative involved in a serious automobile accident and she was ejected from the car, if she was wearing her seatbelt she would of been killed. What we need to do practice is patience on the road and not be in a hurry, From what I expierienced yesterday on your freeways she was probably cut off. I thought cali drivers were bad , I refuse to drive on your roads anymore while I am here to many close calls from inconsiderate drivers. I am going to be a nervous wreck getting out of here driving in the meantime. My condolences to this women family.

    I am sorry to hear that a person has lost their life too soon. Her loved ones are the ones that have to pick up the peaces of their lives after such a loss. May God let you know that he is near at this time.

    People, those of you who offer condolences, God Bless you, for those of you who posted mean nasty comments shame on you. When the Lord if ready for you he will take you, that is not a choice we have and he does not check to see if you have your safety helmet on or not. He is the only one who knows how, when and where he will come to take us home. Ann was a kind loving person and would have done anything for anyone. She was a believer in the Lord and now sits in his presence, I can only hope that those of you who made mean comments will get to see that day for yourself when your time is up. You really should retract your neg. comments and appologize to the family and the Lord for being so cruel to Ann's only child. Once again I say shame on you those of you who were so cold hearted. God protect all bikers, with and without helmets. Cars drivers really need to be more careful, I wonder too if someone cut her off. If any one saw anything please step up and say something.
