A short post, but one I had to write for my own peace of mind today…
Today, I remember a friend… who four years ago this day died tragically in a horrific motorcycle accident. I met him about 20 years ago and at the time… well… I couldn’t have imagined us becoming friends. He was everything that I was not! Oil and water would truly mix better than we did when we met! But, as the years went by, he met and married the love of his life… became an amazing father… and really was one of the most loyal and wonderful friends in my life.
He was always a bit of a thrill seeker… he did everything with such intensity! He loved to ride and would share about how it made him feel… how riding was just simply a part of who he was and it was just one of those things that he felt compelled to do. Sadly, it became the reason too that he is no longer with us today.
So today my friend… and on many days for that matter… I will be thinking about you. I smile and remember the fun and laughs… but also the tears, both of joy and sadness. I remember how proud of a father you were – and you should still be. As I think of the life that you led, that was much too short, I am blessed that you were a part of my life and though it wasn’t for long enough… and I really miss you… those that you left behind are so much a part of you that sometimes I feel like you are still here.
Be at peace my friend! Will raise a glass in your honour… just like we used to! Until we meet again… ♥
