    Gone Too Soon …
    Death does not always come with warning, with time to say the sad farewells. Sometimes it comes, unannounced with no time for even a brief goodbye. Though we were different people, from different places, with different journeys, our paths crossed every Saturday morning. We found a place that felt like home, and helped each other make the best version of ourselves. In our grief we bid a sad farewell…Rest in Peace. We will have you in our memory…Saturday’s ride is for you.

    Dear Lyons family,
    Our family is so very sorry to hear the news of your son and brother. There are no other words except to say that we will be carrying you in our prayers and praying that when He meets the Lord face to face, the Lord would say, “well done, Good and faithful servant!” Praying for the repose of his soul and for your hearts. Praying that God would bless you during this time and give you grace to endure the days to come. God bless you all, and again we will hold you so close to our hearts in prayer!
    Ben, Maria and Family

    Dear Terry & Doug,
    Being a parent myself gives me a “small ” window into the loss of a son. My heart and prayers reach out to you both at this time.
    Sincerely, Tom & Cassie Zabor
