Donna met Jim by chance one day as she was getting our mail and told him about GWTA and that started a wonderful friendship. There were some times when work would keep me from a club event and before Donna had her own bike and she would catch a ride with another member and couple of times it was Jim. He would come by our house a help us with our computer and the only pay he required was a cup of coffee. He really enjoyed riding his trike and he rode it everywhere. Rest in peace friend,
