My deepest sympathies go to you, and your family. I'm really sorry for your loss of such a good man. I didn't know him personally, but met him at the competition, and being a fellow motorcycle racing competitor, it's always a great loss when somebody passes. In my tribute to him, I have mentioned him in my article, "The Texas Mile", in Biker Living Magazine due out next month. I hope you all have a speedy emotional recovery from your loss. Sincerely, Ryan D. Jones
