|A Personal THANK YOU..
just updated the "Memorial" page, adding Sal's name. That
was very hard for me to do.
It wasn't any easier when I
added Pat's name to that page either.
I've come to know
Pat and Sal, through this Club, for the last 15 years and
they were both more than just "fellow members" - they were
very special people
to Fran and I. Saying goodbye to both
- was very hard but knowing they are
together again, is,
in a way, comforting. In the last 15 years, we've probably
them more than we've seen family. They came to our
Wedding (pic below)
and we shared many great trips,
laughs and good times together.
That is why I would
personally like to thank all the members of OCNYHOG and
non-members, who came out to give Sal such a great send-off
Bike Procesession. That meant a great deal to
Fran and I and I'm sure both Sal and Pat
had huge grins
on their faces, knowing how well respected they both were.
Thank you to the Road Captains for doing a great job
keeping us together.
Thank you to Steve for getting the
Police Escort for us.
And now they are both "Riding
with the Angels"..
And they will be sorely missed..
Thank you again...
