    On Saturday, our friend Dave came over to visit. husband and Dave are best friends. They joke that they are such best friends that they share the same birthdate. Those two are exactly the same age.

    We had a good visit with Dave. We went out on a motorcycle ride until it was time for husband to go to work.

    Usually, when Dave leaves, I'm busy so I just yell "good-bye Dave". Saturday, he was leaving as we got off the bikes so I was able to give him a hug good-bye. .....little did I know that it would be the last time I will ever be able to hug him.

    Two hours later, a car crossed the centerline and hit him head-on. He died instantly, which is good. His bike was destroyed. His girlfriend was 10 minutes behind him. She was able to say good-bye at the scene. She's devistated.

    So, I want to remind everyone life is fragile. You never know when you say good-bye that it might be the last time. So, tell your loved ones that you love them!!

    I'm so sorry to hear this...what a tragedy. At least you know in your heart that he died doing something that he loved with people that he loved. Life is truly fleeting...

    I'm sorry for your tragic loss - you put it so well when you said that, indeed, we don't know when we say good bye to a special friend or family member if it might be the last time we get that chance .. .. .. how true
