Last night I was in Erie, Pennsylvania for our cousin Patrick's wake. He passed away on Monday morning at the age of 63 from cancer. He was one of the kindest people you could ever meet. He greeted everyone with respect and a smile. He was the true epitome of the word, "gentleman". The world would be a better place if more people acted the way he did.

One of the things he loved most was riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Over the years, whenever I would visit the relatives in Erie, we would get together and ride our bikes, sometimes with his brother Mike and sisters Marie and Joanne. Now after what has happened I wish now we would have made more time to ride. Last night, they all invited me to come down to Erie this summer for a big event called "Roar On The Shore". It's a huge motorcycle festival and party that is expected to draw about 80,000 bikes this July. This will be the 6th year of the event and it was a big favorite of my cousin Patrick. I have never been to Roar On The Shore, but I plan on going this year. I think it will be the perfect way to honor the memory of my cousin Patrick Donahue. Rest In Peace Patrick.
