    They say a person can count on one hand who his true friends are. I want to thank you for being my friend. All of the years and all of the good times. All of the miles we rode our motorcycles. You are forever in the wind my brother..

    Sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    So many good memories riding the bikes and playing music. He was a good friend who I learned a lot from and I am fortunate to have known him during the short time we are on this earth.

    Ride free Terry…….
