Reader tributes

Words cannot express the pain I feel. Mr.Grace was a wonderful person, who did not deserve what happen to him.
when I think of him all I see is his smile. I think he smiled 99% of the time I saw him.
I truly hope that metro link does not hire any more idiots like the guy who was driving.

To his family ..sorry for your lost.
Mr. grace may you rest in peace. we willnever forget you ever!
