He was not a cyclist which is why I'm doing this in Foo. He was my brother and he died Wednesday morning after fighting lung cancer since January. He would have turned 42 on June 8th. He really wanted to make it to that date, I think because he knew Douglas Adams considered 42 to be the "ultimate answer." It was not to be but he will be remembered then and for years to come by myself, his nieces and by an amazing group of friends who sat vigil with him 24/7 and were with him at the end. The unbelievable efforts of his friends and the local Hospice organization allowed him to peacefully pass in his home instead of in a cancer ward and that is truly a blessing.
As I said he was not a cyclist but knew and associated with several who ride around Birmingham and Montevallo, Al. If anyone who reads this rides around there ask about him, you might hear a few funny stories.
