Dear God I still can't believe what has happened.   I didn't believe it could possibly be OUR Jon until I made a call to Bob only to find that he was in process of bringing Jon home.   There are no words to express to Yvette and her family how much my heart aches for you all.   You are in my thoughts and prayers.    May Jon forever ride in complete safety now, surrounded by Angels and watching out for all of us.   I can't believe I'm typing these words!  Too surreal.  

I remember the first LONG conversation I ever had with Jon, picking his brain about the new  WWR and what EXACTLY it was and how EXACTLY it was going to work and then he said "Oh, you're THAT one!" when I told him about my group.   I didn't know how to take that at first but as the conversation went on I realized the sweet, good humor, good nature of this fine man.   After meeting him in person for the first time I thought his larger than life personality matched his physical body.   A body that needed to be big enough to contain the huge heart he had for everone and everything he did.   His endless dedication and tireless efforts for every mission he took on will be so sorely missed.   Never too busy to take a phone call or return one immediately even if it wasn't anything urgent.   I just can NOT take this in.   We will be there to see you off my friend as you were always there for me.

I am so stunned by this loss of an American Patriot I called my brother.  His kind words, his voice of reason when things got out of control, his leadership and focus on our mission, yes, even his practical jokes  (It was MY trike he tied Pebbles to last week)....these were small windows into the soul of the man we called leader, friend, and brother.  He touched so many of us, and will be missed for a long time to come.

I owe JonD, and Yvette, so very much.  Their compassion, and encouragement guided me through a dark periord in my life, and got me riding again.  For that I will be forever grateful.  Yvette, it is now MY turn....anything at all you need, just call, and I'll handle it.

I pray that Jon's family is given the strength to deal with this tragedy, and know that they will always have my support.  May Jon watch over all of his WWR brothers and sisters as we continue our mission, now, and forever.  Amen.

I just got home from bringing Jon home.  I've stood by at probably a hundred-plus funerals of all types, but this was the single hardest run I've been on, while wearing any set of colors.  JonD was one of the "good guys," and the world is a little darker for his absence.  I'm going to do everything I can to be there Sunday as well, its really the least I can do.

Godspeed, Jon.  We got your back here.

Tonight, on less than two hours notice, 30 some riders braved Chicago rush hour traffic to meet at the Hinsdale Oasis to escort JonD to the funeral home in Buffalo Grove.  Not surprising really.

How many people in your life have you met that could call you at 10 pm and say "How about we get on our bikes before dawn tomorrow and ride 200 miles in freezing rain to honor someone we've never met, because it's the right thing to do", and get 50 people to do it?

You can't buy that kind of leadership.  You can't train someone to that level of leadership.  That kind of leadership comes from some mysterious place deep inside very special people.

We've lost one of those very special people.

We will pre-stage at the D-C at 0800 Sunday morning - details to follow.  That's the place JonD had us stage for dozens of missions, and it's the right thing to do.  We will ride to the funeral home to escort our brother to his resting place, because it's the right thing to do.  We will stand in his honor at the gravesite, because it's the right thing to do.

We will cry, because it's the only thing to do.

And then we will ride again for others, with pegs down for JonD, because it's the right thing to do.

The D-C is a Phillips 66 service station located at the northwest corner of Rt 62 and Rt 25.  D-C stands for "dirty crapper".  This is not a place where you want to visit the rest room facilities.

Let's ride!

Some of you may or may not know why you have seen me with a Flava Flav clock around my kneck. Jon D decided that since I rode a Goldwing that was more like a rolling couch that I should ride in a suede jogging suit. He also thought that I needed some "bling" to go with it. Since I never did buy a suit Jon took it upon himself to supply me with the "bling".
We had some good laughs, as did some of the other members over this. From now on I won't be able to look at a clock without being a little sad and happy at the same time. I will always remember the day that he presented me with that and will wear it proudly from time to time when the moment is right. This will always remind me that anytime is the right time to honor our troops the way Jon would want us to. I am extremley proud and honored to have ridden with Jon both for the mission and for pleasure. I can truely say I will never forget him and will always miss him as will the WWR organization.
Rest in peace and God's speed my friend.
