I tried my best to overcome my illness and made due with very little, but still could not change the wishes of god to bring me home. It was a great ride while it lasted and you can be sure that I will watch over all of you. I will miss you all but most of all, my wife, Kim. She is my partner, my friend and the love of my life. I ask that you not mourn my death but instead, celebrate my life and the memories we have generated together. Love & respect to my club for all you have done for me and my family. Till we meet again, be safe and don't worry about me, I'm doing just fine..."
