LARGO, Fla. (AP) -

Tens of thousands of people have liked or shared a Facebook status update a Florida motorcyclist posted hours before he was apparently killed by a drunken driver on New Year's Eve.

Thirty-one-year old Matthew DeRemer of St. Petersburg wrote Thursday morning that he was reflecting on his faith and looking forward to what 2016 would bring.

DeRemer's closing statement: "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."

A Florida Highway Patrol report says DeRemer died about 8 p.m. when his motorcycle was struck by a drunken driver in Largo.
