I am so sorry. I recently had a friend pass away at age 21. He was mountain biking at MOAB. Once again I am sorry.

RIP Josh

Yes, RIP.

However brief his life was, it does appear that he lived it to the fullest and enjoyed every single aspect of it. His brief visit was experienced to the fullest.

My thoughts & prayers go out to family and friends.

My condolences. I would have gotten along with Ben big time. Hacking, riding and beer? Sounds like a true friend. RIP.
