    Brother-in-law/friend/ fellow Rider

    My wife’s sister’s husband Phil Reedy, was a motor head and one hell of a great guy. He was always asking me to visit him at his Florida summer home to ride 4 wheelers. He loved street bikes, dirt bikes, quads, jet skis, classic or unusual cars. He chauffeured my son to his Jr. prom in his Rolls Royce he picked up at a state auction. He had numerous dirt bikes so his buddies would always have something to ride. Last I rode with him was probably 20 years ago on a off-road trek through the old central PA coal roads and some pretty hairy trails on a Honda XR 200, him on a KTM. It was a blast. He and his family always came to our house for Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving dinner. On one of his last visits before he started getting sick, he let me take his Can Am Spyder for a rip. One of the most generous people I’ll ever know. Rest in Piece brother Phil.

      Thanks. I forgot to mention, he had requested that his ashes be scattered at the along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Shame I never got to do that ride with Phil.

                  Not likely. I honestly don’t know if he knew how to even turn on a computer. Wasn’t his thing.

                      You have some great memories, and great memories is what all of us should try to have. That may be all we can take with us when we go.

                              Life is a balancing act, enjoy every day, "later" will come sooner than you think. Denying yourself joy now betting you will have health and money to enjoy life later is a bad bet.
