    My name is Carolynne Weller and I am the sister of James Weller who was killed in a motorcycle accident. I obviously cannot do anything to bring him back but I would like to raise awareness for motorcycle drivers and refer to the Save a life. Look twice. Motorcycle awareness campaign. More and more people get motorcycles everyday and they are harder to see. My brother was not a careless driver. Someone failed to yield to him because they didn’t see him coming and they took his life. I would not wish that burden on anyone. My brother was a fine young man even tho it was his decision to have and ride a motorcycle, I just please urge people to slow down and look twice. Not just for motorcycles but all motorist on the road. It happens to people everyday but please I urge you to look twice not on to save someone else’s life but possibly your own. Motorcyclist are out there but they are human beings. Thank you.

    In loving memory of James Allan Weller.
