    We will never forget you and the beautiful memories we had with you and your mom at Ft Sill. You will always have a special place in our hearts. One day we will see you again but until then we will keep your memory alive.

    Btw, Cadence loves you too. She’s an old girl now; almost 13 years old. Your doggy is in good hands okay.

    So sorry for your loss, I love motorcycle riding and understand his love for them! But other drivers and such can make it dangerous! The release of stress and life while riding is Amazing! God is always there and letting you see the world through his eyes!
    May God be with you as you suffer your loss of a son, a friend and an amazing young man!
