Here are a few exerts from some of the stories I have been told, we ask for prayer not only for our own loss but also for these other victims:

“I am so sorry about J.T., your story has brought tears to my eyes. I want to commend you on your mission to prevent this from happening to anyone else. Unfortunately, my family is going through a similar event. In November, my niece was killed on a Rhino. She had just turned 18. She was riding a friends Rhino at a slow speed and made a sharp turn, her head and neck were crushed by the rollbar...she died instantly (we pray). Our families lives will never be the same, because of this company."

“My grandson was killed Tuesday on a ATV. He was ten years old. Im sure you know how much I hurt right now. We dont blame anyone but at the same time it just should not have happened. We need some time but we will join your efforts soon to make people aware of the dangers of ATVs. Maybe I can put you in contact with my daughter. She has been amazing through all of this. Im sure you could be a help to her. “

“First and foremost I want to tell you how sorry I am that you lost your beautiful son. There is no pain in comparison to losing a child.
You are in my thoughts and prayers now and will be forever more.
I am glad that you made this website and that the word is spreading about Yamaha Rhinos.
My life was forever changed, I am now disfigured and I still face amputation for the rest of my life.
I had no clue what I was getting myself into the day I got in that Rhino.”

“As I sit hear with tears rolling down my face I could only imagine the feeling of losing a child. I am a Yamaha rhino owner with three little boys. I cant tell you how many times I had both my boys out for rides on the rhino and never thought about the rhino tipping over and what damage it could ever do. I feel horrible that I never considered their safety and their well being. I wondered why I received the recall and was offered doors installed free of charge. I pondered for a few days wondering if I should have them installed or not. Thinking I would never have this rhino roll over on me, thinking I’m a good driver and this would only happen to someone careless. Well I did put on doors after all and still knowing how dangerous these machines are I will have to look into what I can do to make this safer to ride. I would of never of bought this knowing how much grief these rhinos have caused. AS I look at my son sleeping next to me on the couch, I could never imagine not having him with me. I would go to the ends of the world for my little boy's safety and would protect them with every bit of my heart & soul. I admire what you have done and said and hope you find peace in knowing that you did affect me and my thinking. God bless you and little J.T.”
