Hey Cuz (Hug) Thank you for giving me the passion and love of riding motorcycles. Thank you for the long talks and being a good cousin while I was growing up next to you. Thank you for taking care of Dad for a week while I could not. It was very much appreciated, as we did talk about it after. You will be missed Cuz.
Chris,Joshua and Jennifer, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope to be there on Tuesday, but as we are short staffed, I am not sure I will be allowed to take time off, but know my thoughts and prayers are with you all. If there is anything I can do please let me know.
