A Tribute to Paul
nephew Paul finished his earth bound journey today. Son, nephew,
husband, father...all these and more. Paul was a brother rider, a lover
of the freedom of the open road. An accident several years ago had
left him in a suspended physical state. No...not on a motorcycle, just a
simple act of walking across a street and being hit by a car. Life is
short. It can end it in a split second. Too often it can be taken for
granted. Paul never did. He embraced every moment. I remember how he
and his wife arrived for a family "get together" in Boston one time.
"Thought we would just ride the bike," Paul said. "You know, it is just
a short ride up from Florida." That was Paul, embracing the moment.
is free now. It is easy to see him riding with the wind on his back,
big smile on his face, embracing the moment. Roll on the throttle
brother, know you are enjoying the ride. We will all miss you.
be strong, be safe, Carlan
