How you found us: you found me... ;)

Gerard and I were both going through divorces. I had just completed mine, Gerard was trying desperately to keep his together. He loved his wife unconditionally, even though she was sleeping around. Gerard and I got back from riding to the south side of Chicago one day, and we said our goodbyes and both went home. When he got home, he found his wife's diary detailing her exploits including meeting men on the internet and shacking up with them, including a week long affair down in Tennessee. It was too much for him to take and he hung himself in his garage.

He was a good man. Probably the best I ever knew. And certainly not deserving of what life handed him that day, regardless if it was by his hand or not.....

That's what the Gman is in reference to below my sig....

In memory of Gman

I remeber when you told us about all of that. That is a horrible situation.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Gerard was the rider who rode a Hayabusa?

Just reading that passage made me sick to my stomach. It's just not right. I can't imagine how unbearable all that pain must have been.

God bless, Gerard. Be at peace.
