Tell me not in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
— A Psalm of Life Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It seems that a lot of our friends have suffered serious (even deadly) illnesses and tragedies – this year especially. It’s like the world is turned up side down for all those around us and our family wants to let you know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Unfortunately, once again we learned of another friend’s tragic passing. He was struck and killed just a few blocks from our home. He was a happy- go- lucky kind of guy, who showed up at many of our events to volunteer. But, sadly, he didn’t wear a helmet and this, of course, is a stark reminder to wear a helmet when riding.
It may just save your life.
