August 29 | Cruisin'

On August 22, 2003, eleven months to the day after Melissa's death I went to Anchorage to take the ABATE training class and get my motorcycle license. I passed the classes and got my license and I know Melissa is smiling for me. I use to ride occasionally with Rodney, but this year it took a long time for me to go for a ride with him. Then I decided that I wanted to ride for Melissa.

As we all know she love to ride...anything. Snowmachines, four-wheelers, motorcycles, it didn't matter anything anyone would let her on. So I did my first solo ride on Tuesday with a big smile, like Melissa always had, and thought the whole time of how proud she would be of me.

I just wish she was here to ride with Rodney & I
