Please pray for Kevin Tam's family

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

If there is an auction for his firearms, as an FFL dealer I can attand the auction if allowed.
BTW,In Texas, If there is no will, the next of the kin would not be the estate of the deceased?
I think in Texas, without a will or a spouse, everything goes to the state except for any lien holder. Then, whatever item there is still a lien on goes back to whoever holds the lien. Something like that. Maybe
It's actually a commonly-held misconception that "everything goes to the state." A more accurate way to state it is that "without a Will, the state determines where everything goes." The state determines that, though, through its inheritance laws. Here is a brief overview of what happens when an unmarried person residing in Texas dies without a Will:
Thanks for that information. It's good to know that all or most of Kevin's possessions will go to his family. That's assuming he did not have a will. He very well may have, which would be unusual for someone so young and not in the military or in a very dangerous profession.

Today, 4/30/24, I was up to Denton to file my homestead exemption. Then I finally got around to something I have been meaning to do for a while.

I then went to the Denton County courthouse at 1450 McKinney St. in the City of Denton.

I had the Little Elm PD police report about strogg/Kevin Tam's accident, which happened on 9/12/22. It took first responders 1 hour to extricate him from his Ford Focus, a car in which my S.O. and myself, had ridden in multiple times when it was Kevin's turn to drive to Arlington or Willow Park for the gun breakfasts. Kevin hung on for 3 days, passing from this vale of tears on 9/15/22.

The Clerk of the Court, for criminal matters (as opposed to civil matters), referenced the LEPD police report and searched for a long time, trying to see if the man who caused Kevin's death was ever charged by the DA for vehicular manslaughter, or some such charge.

There was no record of this man ever being charged with anything related to causing Kevin's death. He skated, and continues to live his life.

Rest in peace Kevin.

That's terrible! I wonder why no charges were filed.

I’ve been thinking about this and wondered something I don’t know about regarding the incident itself. Was there no charges because it was determined that Kevin was at fault or at least 51% at fault? He can’t think of any other reason there wouldn’t be any charges for something like this especially when it resulted in a death.
