  • Carrie, Jamie and Brianna,

    I just wanted to say I am so very sorry for the loss of your Dad. Please know that I am here for you all.

  • It’s hard to put in words what I am feeling right now. Though we didn’t see each other a lot the last 5 years, I still always thought about you. Growing up you was my cool biker uncle, whom I idolized. I was always excited to show you my new rides and get your thoughts on them. I never did get a Triumph chopper, like we always talked about. Thanks for being an amazing uncle! Ride Free!!
