One of the fellas in our Tuesday/Thursday riding group is in his 50's, lives in my subdivision and was relocated out of state. His wife had an great job that required a lot of travel out of the country. They decided that since it was not a good time to sell a house and they weren't too far from retirement age they kept the house here--- which she used as a home base. Our cycling friend just purchased or rented a condo at his new work location.
He got the shocking news a couple weeks ago that his wife died while on a trip in Asia. Tough few weeks for him. He had a pretty difficult time just getting her body flown back to Charlotte. Fortunately his employer has offices around the Country and currently he is working around Charlotte. He is trying to get relocated back to the Charlotte area where their son lives.
He came back out to ride with us tonight. Good guy.
Hopefully getting back on the bike can give him a little peace while he tries to sort through all this.
God Bless Him............
