Terry, my thoughts and prayers have been with you. My beloved Grandmother passed the same day, and was burried the same day as your Dad. As we laid her to rest and the bag pipes played I thought not only of my family, but your family, and our PGR brothers as well. I wish I could have been there. Good to know your back. Be vigilant, be prepared, lets ride.
Sorry for your loss. I couldn't make the ride due to work schedule. The name Martin Ayers sounded familiar to me when I heard the news. Until today, I wasn't sure why? When I was a young buck of 22 (now 61), I was going to college and worked summers at Montgomery Ward's at Capital Plaza. Your Dad was one of the first people I became friends with. My watch broke and I went to him and he fixed it for free. He knew his watches. He was a fantastic man and everyone liked him. Although , I have not seen him in 38 years, I still remember his rewarding smile. Thanks for posting his picture and bringing back a great memory to me.
My prayers are with you and your family.
