Default Lost a brother

Got a phone call yesterday morning informing me that my best friend/brother had pass early yesterday morning he was one of the true friend you could count on one hand
For a long time he was a Harley man until the Vic's came out and he had got one if the first one which was a 99 sc and he named it loud & proud
We used to ride together all the time going to bike nights and Rally's he will surely be miss
RIP Dawg

Im really sorry to read about someone important in your life being with you no more. Several have gone out of my life in recent times, so maybe I have just an idea of what it feels like and means to you enough to be sympathetic. It is my hope that you have good memories and good people to share them with, and hope for a great future - even an eternal one. May God bless you, Dawg and all of yalls loved-ones!

Very sorry to hear about your loss. I too lost someone like that just a few weeks ago. Lost another one, not nearly as close, a couple of weeks ago. I keep waiting for the 3rd since these things tend to come in three's sometimes.

I guess I've gotten to that age when the passing of friends and older relatives are going to happen more frequently than I'm used to. Sad.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. But in time it gets easier as your brothers ride of into the sunset. I have more dead than alive. It just becomes a fact of life. Don't morn their death celebrate their life. Every place I ride has memories of those that have passed. Younger times, crazy wild times a few said times. But we naturally suppress the bad times. Some day it will be our time.

Been there too and it is especially sad to lose both a friend and a riding partner. I like to say it's easier to find a good wife than a riding buddy that matches your timing and style. Sad for your loss, but glad for your memories.
