Sorry:

He had so many health issues for such a young age, battling diabetes, thyroid issues, and a heart murmur.

My father was an amazing man. He was a genuinely good man. He always tried to see the best in people. He was brilliant and logical. I would call him, he would always pick up and give me exactly the right answers. He worked hard to make mine and my mother's life as easy as possible. He wanted us both to have the best in life. He solved all my problems and honestly, I have no idea how to live without my daddy.

We would always poke fun at my dad for going on "his bike forums." He loved checking the forums after work and he would show me conversations he thought were funny. I thought it would be important to tell you all good bye for him. This site gave him a good bit of joy.

There is a message in Foo supposedly written by his daughter that correctly uses his first name. If so, this really, really sucks. If not, somebody is playing some really f...cked up jokes that's not cool.

Allen,

If you want to start a fund for an MV memorial with Paypal or the like, I'll chip in.

Sonny had diabetes. Donating to one of the research charities seems appropriate.
