A Father's Tragedy..

On August 8, 2007 Bryan Padgett left this world way too soon. Listen as his father shares in his own words about the sadness he feels after losing his 24 year-old son in an illegal street race and why he has teamed up with Hollywood Stuntmen Corey Eubanks and Sammy Maloof to do something about it.

Please note, the video will not play at this time, but you can see Janeen's creation by clicking on the title of this post.

UPDATE 6:02 p.m. Video now running thanks to Janeen..

The Padgett Family would like to thank Janeen for creating such a wonderful tribute for Bryan Padgett. Much more will be shared in the next few days regarding our joint efforts to stop illegal street racing. If we save but one life, it will be worth our efforts.

Once again I want to offer my condolences for your great loss. I lost my father when I was 19, but that can't possibly compare to the pain of losing a son. I know he is smiling down on you from heaven right now.

Btw, the video doesn't work for me, it says that it is no longer available.

I'm certain this video will have an impact on those who take 5 minutes to view it, and will inspire them to pass it along. It touched my very being.

Continue to make efforts to save lives from this deadly activity.

May God bless you and yours.

Dave and Nubia, thanks for informing me the video was not running. Seems the embedding was turnd off, which will not allow the video to run from anywhere but YouTube.

This world is not of chaos. There is a plan.

Be serene in the knowledge that: planet orbits sweep equal areas in a given time, chickens always hatch chickens, and the sun has never arisen in the West.

Ed, you have seen much sorrow in a very short time. Let your heart be light.

You, I, and most of our fellows will be "insiders" within 20 to 30 years. Bryan will likely be there to give tours.
