    Unhappy Sad news about Dave E

    I got an email from Dave's brother, Dave passed away yesterday afternoon. He was at home, surrounded by family and in no pain. <aw crap, gotta dry my eyes>

    Besides sci, Dave was a cancer "survivor", it had been in remission for a couple years. At his last checkup two months back, it had come back with a vengeance, his body was "ate up" with it. His Docs told him he only had months to live. If/when I ever get news like this, I hope I can take it like Dave, he moved forward with doing the things he needed to do, and kept a sense of humor all thru it.

    Dave tried to not let anything slow him down. He was an old Biker, he and his wife kept horses on their Colorado home, they had just gotten into traveling in their motorhome(he was tired of CO winters and wanted to snowbird south).

    Don't know much about services yet, supposed to be on the 21st in Oak Creek, CO.

    Ride Free my friend, keep the wind in your face.

    From his CC album:

    His take on Life, from his album:

    Been there-Done that. My life was very full and complete prior to my injury. Now I'm trying to figure out what the good Lord wants me to do. My wife is my hero. After only 2 years of marriage she stayed by my side and makes every day brighter. I live just outside of Steamboat Springs, Co. I feel it is paradise. Although I can't ride the bike or the horses any more, I am not angry. I truly believe I am a better person now than before as I know how precious life is and what really matters. Be kind to others and smile. It's Free!

    A cool cat. They say people die the way they live.

    My sympathies to his family and friends.

    R.I.P Dave.

    My Dave's family and friends take comfort in the the fact that he lived life fully, no matter what.
    May you feel the wind in your face again Dave.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    Sorry to hear about dave e, peace with the family
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Sorry McDuff. Sounds like Dave had it figured out. Joe, good luck to your sister. Cancer takes too many of us. I'm sorry to hear about your mom Herco.
