Today, after the accident, his parents picked up his personal effects from the coroner’s office. His mom told me his iPhone was open to a half-written text message addressed to me in response to a text message I had sent him moments before the accident. MMT

I'm sorry for your loss, but I hope even more than he didn't kill someone else in the accident while he was texting & driving.

I'm so sorry. My boyfriend recently admitted that he texts me sometimes while he's driving and it scares me so much :(

How do we know that he was in a car when he died. There are many accidents that could happen due to texting instead of paying attention.

as much as I hate to admit it, I text and drive sometimes, and i tell others not to--thats its dangerous and inconsiderate. Maybe the benefits outweigh the perceived costs. I don´t think many of us perceive all the costs, because they are only potential. Too bad they are potentially catastrophic..

I really hope he wasn't driving.

I hope you know you're not to blame. He didn't have to respond to your text right that second...he could have waited until he was at a red light or parked. Don't feel guilty; he simply made a poor choice. I'm sorry for your loss.
