What a reunion that must have been when you joined your Mom and Dad up there in heaven. We are surely Jealous of the Angels, but know we will see you all again.
Watch over your Sister and family and help them to let go of the grief, remembering all of your happy times.
Forever loved and missed by all.

I couldn’t believe the news, it was difficult to take in. You were one of those people that in my mind would live forever. The worst sunburn I ever had was from riding on the back of your bike for an entire day. No sympathy from you though, in fact I think you called me a dumbass😂 !! You will be missed my friend and I hope they have Harleys in heaven 😇
