Bye to a friend

by

Someone I know died today. He lived in Seattle and had a wonderful family. Last week, he was training on his bike and a delivery truck turned in front of him. According to what I was told, at his speed, it took him through the passenger side window.
Avoiding the medical details between a week ago and today, his ventilator was turned off at noon and he soon passed with family and friends surrounding him.

It brings back that whole bike vs. auto for me. It makes it personal. And when I hear people make blanket statements about renegade bikers, I get a little mad.

But today is not a day to get mad. Today is a day to say goodbye to Jose.
