LARGO, Florida– A man’s final Facebook post has gone viral after he was killed by an alleged drunk driver.

FOX 13 in Tampa Bay reports that Matthew DeRemer, 31, was hit by the accused drunk driver as he rode his motorcycle on New Year’s Eve.

Just hours before the crash, DeRemer posted something touching on his Facebook page:

“Last day of 2015!!!! For me I’ll be meditating through all I do, on this entire year. I’ve lost, I’ve gained, family is closer and tougher than ever before, loved ones lost, and new friends found. There has been many times where I’ve been found on my knees in prayer for hours (relentless) and other times leading a group of people in prayer, my faith (that I love to share) is an everyday awakening(to me) that people, lives, and circumstances can change for the better OVER TIME. I look back at 2015’s huge challenges that I’ve overcome, shared with others, and have once again found myself… To say thank you and BRING ON 2016, much works to be done!

And I really don’t know where I’ll end up tonight but I do know where I windup is where I’m meant to be😋”

According to FOX 13, DeRemer was a Marine veteran who had just gotten a job in the medical field.
