Nova Scotia rider down

It is with a tremendous sad and heavy heart that I say my wife Shirley, friend, riding partner and soul mate, as well as a beautiful mother, was killed Monday afternoon on her motorcycle while coming home from work. Someone went to pass a car going the opposite direction and hit her head on. In the blink of an eye our life is irrepairably damaged.....I love you Shirley.

Shirley ...

(Nate, Shirley, Kerry, Phil, and Larry just a few months ago on our ride to New France)

and Kerry with some of our friends during happier days. Kerry - I am deeply saddened to have read your PM and this post this morning. I did not want to believe this happened. My personal prayers are for you today.
