A man who posted an optimistic Facebook post on New Year’s Eve and tragically died, has become a viral hit online. Matthew DeRemer joined many on December 31 writing a ‘state of life’ address on his social network page. He even included the hopes and dreams he had for 2016.
But the Marine veteran was killed when he was riding his motorcycle in Largo, Florida that evening and was struck by a drunk driver, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
The 31-year-old, who worked as a surgical technologist, died at the scene, where Steven Lee Clarke, 59, was arrested in the crash. Little did he know that the post would be his last or that it would touch so many strangers’ lives.
But since then, DeRemer’s last post has been shared almost 30,000 times with more than 70,000 likes.
Along with an image saying: “We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day.
After his death, DeRemer’s powerful message was shared by his friends and across Facebook.
Rebecca Bryce said: “Such a beautiful final post,” while Jerry Iredale added: “Bro I don’t know you, but I read the post last night… You basically wrote your own obituary.
RIP young man… God bless you and your family!!
