My Buddy Wayne!

Linda is in Arkansas this morning to be with her family as they
prepare to bury her brother Wayne. He died Sunday morning
after complications from a heart surgery - the details are a
blur and rather insignificant, the bottom line is that this world
has lost 1 INCREDIBLE human...
I loved Wayne!
I often told people that he was my hero - that he had mastered
"happy"!!! He fiercely loved his family and anything to do with a
motor and tires! My last memories of Wayne come from a trip
where we hauled the Harley to Arkansas and Wayne was like a
kid as we unloaded the bike and prepared to ride the mountains!
I can still see him in front of us on his GoldWing - I sensed that
he was as much a part of the road as the center line - he rode
with the ease that only comes with riding a motorcycle for over
40 years.
We rode on...
He smiled...
He was happy!!!!

I'm good to go with that memory - I love you Wayne - I'll miss
you and your sister has a HUGE hole in her heart - that will be
filled with memories of your smile.....

Ride on, my friend.....

Wanda - thank you for sharing your awesome dude with us!
