    Moriah,

    May God bless you and your brother and sister. Your dad sounded like he was one of the really great guys and I'm sorry I wasn't around here earlier, to know him.

I just drove by his crash siting the other day with my aunt when i remembered he had this. My sister hannah read all of the posts about him on the fourth of july to remember him so thank you so much for that :) hannah and brandon were both really little when he passed away and i am terrified they wont remember what a great dad he was to us. I wish they had gotten to spend more time with us, he was the best :)

        Your post really hit home with me, Moriah.

        A year or two, maybe three, I sent your dad's sister (can't remember her name at the moment) all the photos I had with your dad in them.

        Here they are -




        Futile, my ZX-11, Jody, and Mike's RS ready to leave Sunday morning. The morning was bright and sunny. A word about Futile. He rode down the previous day in rain most of the way, just to be able to ride with us the next day back exactly the way he had come, in the rain again. He is Grade-A stuff.



        I wish I had more for you.

        Diogenes said that we have two ears and one mouth so that we'll listen more and talk less. Your dad was the embodiment of that in the best way. Though he didn't brag about it, he loved you and your siblings very much. I hope you are all well and happy.

        Thank you for posting.
        Thank you so much crazytrain, this means a lot. I accidently replied to the wrong post earlier, oops. I have a question regarding something to do with myself, my siblings, and my dad. it wont let me message you and this site is VERY confusing. so if you could please get back to me at your soonest convenience, that would be great.


        sincerely




        Moriah

          Moriah,

          just post back up if you can't get through to Chris. Someone will get through to you.

            Moriah, you can send any member a private message without too much trouble. If you can't figure it out just holler and we'll all lend a hand.

            Also, a bunch of us are coming to Idaho/Montana in July, and we're stopping at the crash site on Saturday July 18. We'd be honored to share that time with you and your family. Contact me if you'd like to arrange to meet us there.

                Slayman and I will be stopping at his curve on our way to Dillon next month to pay our respects, reflect a bit, and make sure his memorial is intact. I haven't been over there in 5 years.

                    Miss him a lot. A great rider and a better guy.
