He had plans for the new year but those dreams would never come to being…
A US marine met his tragic death on new year’s eve after being hit by a drunk driver in Largo, Florida. Matthew DeRemer, 31, wrote his final post just hours before being killed. Read below,
“Last day of 2015!!!! For me I’ll be meditating through all I do, on this entire year. I’ve lost, I’ve gained, family is closer and tougher than ever before, loved ones lost, and new friends found. There has been many times where I’ve been found on my knees in prayer for hours (relentless) and other times leading a group of people in prayer, my faith (that I love to share) is an everyday awakening (to me) that people, lives, and circumstances can change for the better OVER TIME.
“I look back at 2015’s huge challenges that I’ve overcome, shared with others, and have once again found myself… To say thank you and BRING ON 2016, much works to be done!” he continued. “And I really don’t know where I’ll end up tonight but I do know where I wind up is where I’m meant to be.”
According to NBC, DeRemer was struck by a drunk driver while riding his motorcycle near his home. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The alleged driver, Steven Clarke, was charged with DUI manslaughter.
