    This is my uncle. He was dying of cancer. Thanks for all of you heartfelt comments. Does a rap sheet mean you deserve to die? At least he never said bad things about someone who had died. Wait for your turn. Hope everyone says WONDERFUL things about you.

    The guy had a "rap" sheet - and I am not talking about a style of music - a mile long, including several DUI convictions.

    Investigators aren't sure what caused the wreck.

    Talking on his cell phone? Smoking a cigarette? Drunker than a skunk? Just maybe.
