    Keri asked me to post up this for her.

    Hello

    I want to say thank you to everyone who has reached out and helped me in this difficult time. The breakfast of the ride was an incredible experience and it was so great to put faces with stories from Don. He always told me how great everyone was and the last couple of months have reinforced that. You were all a very important part of his life and have made the last 5+ years of his life even greater.

    His memorial will be January 10th from 2-5 pm. It will be at Kent Spade's house located at 11040 N 73rd St, Scottsdale, AZ. We are honoring Don's free spirit side by asking you to wear tie dye. It will be a time of sharing Don stories.

    Please let me know at broker@ssrealtyinc.com if you are able to attend. If you know anyone who may to read this please feel free to pass it on.

    Thank you again and have a wonderful and safe holiday.

    I had a chance to speak with Kent this morning and he said he would section off an area for the motorcycle guys.

    Just got back home from the memorial for Seabee1. It was pretty cool to hear some of the stories about Don from some of his closest friends.

    He will truly be missed....................:cry

    I missed it and I'm bummed. I was over at Barrett Jackson, getting my press credentials and I was going to go right from there to Don's thing. It was a clusterfuck at B-J and I would not have made it over there (Kent's) in time for the service.

    Good to see you BigE, 4Play, Reidy008, AZRedline, Refokus at Don's Memorial. The weather was perfect and the stories made it as if Don was there with us.

    Full military honors from both Navy and Army. Bunch of his military buddies told stories. Nice.

    I wasn't crying when they played Taps, I got some dirt in my eye...

    Love-Ya Don!
