Reposa, Fitting Tribute--Gemma Ride

Share:

I want to thank everyone who came to the wake and funeral for our Brother John.  It was a fitting tribute for such a good hearted soul.  I have to thank our Brothers from Mass 1 that came down and spent the afternoon and night waiting in line on Thursday as well as our Brothers and Sisters from the Defenders who came to share in our remembrance of our Brother John.  You could see from the turnout that John was loved by everyone that he touched.  I have to tell you that his parents and sister were deeply touched by our final salute to John at his casket.  He always had a smile on that would brightened your day.  He will be sadly missed.  R.I.P. in Heaven 1 my Brother.
 
After such an emotional two days I have to thank everyone who came to the Gloria Gemma Cancer Ride on  Saturday.  As always the cancer survivors appreciated us giving them the opportunity to go on the ride.  Thank you to all who volunteered and gave a survivor a ride, to the road guards for an outstanding job, to Alan for making it almost all right turns and for those who were just able to attend.  Also to Dana for the use of his Cruiser and Chelsea for driving it in the ride and for the decorations.  If you left before the end we presented the white sheet that we all signed to the Foundation Representatives and the survivors.  (Hopefully, next year, we'll coordinate with the Pink Heels Foundation and make sure we don't have the event on the same day as theirs.)
 
My Brothers and Sisters I have stated this before, I know it has been a rough year for our chapter but as always we hold true to one another.  We support one another and help each other through the bad days and try to enjoy the good days.  I know that personally I have only been able to make it through these times by your support.  You make me stay positive and I look forward to happier times for our chapter.
 
As always, remember, "Its all about the ride" !!!
