I am very sorry about you loosing your friend.
But think of it this way, he didn't suffer from a lingering disease, he didn't die alone, and he died doing something fun. Just remember the good times you shared. I am sure he wouldn't want you dwelling on how he died.
I am sure he is now riding with all the other riders who has passed before us.
Prayers sent.

That must have been quite traumatic to see him ride off the cliff.
I am fortunate enough to be part of a pretty close group of riders/racers. Several of us are well over 40. Once in awhile I think about the day one of us passes. It will be difficult to say the least. Hang in there my fellow rider!

I'm very sorry for the loss of your friend, Saltpacker. I agree with Jedi, that must have been very difficult for you to witness.

Godspeed, Jerry Sales. You will not be forgotten.

Sorry to hear about your friend Jerry, it must be hard specially during this time of the holiday season. Good friends some times can be closer to you than your own family or feel like they are part of your family and that's how I feel Jerry was to you from you post.

More prayers for Jerry's family and you from Texas...

God Speed Jerry..........

Man that is a real gut check for you. My prayers for your friend, his family and you. Please let us know if we can do anything for his family or if you just need to vent. Be strong.

Bill

Saltpacker,
Thank you for providing the date of Jerry's untimely passing. I have taken the liberty to add the name of Jerry Sales to the "List" that will forever "Remember Those Who Rode."

The days ahead will be difficult and I would suggest that you and Jerry's family focus on remembering the "light" of Jerry's life. I would suspect that if Jerry could he would encourage his children to move forward remembering not his passing, but his life and to make good decision that will bring on a heavenly smile to their dad.

Those who pass before us will always be "remembered" if we cherish our memories of them and the great things we learned from them in their life and will eventually come to realize from their passing. The memories and love will remain in our hearts and can sustain us in the dark days IF we allow them to.

As I mentioned before I would be happy to speak with Jerry's Family as one who knows what they are feeling. Please keep us posted and how his family is doing.

May Jerry Sales Rest in Eternal Peace and ride and roost in the heavenly realm!

Please do not be afraid to contact me if you so feel inclined.

In sympathy and sincerity,

Mike Berg
