Richard J. Morrison --

Rick passed this Sunday while riding in Yreka California with some of his buddies, he was 54 years old. We will be holding a memorial service for him in Medford, Oregon. The date will be released in the local paper and we will do our best to contact his friends and let them know. We are very shocked at this loss and are very sad to see such a wonderful man pass. At least he was doing what he loved most.

Thank you for your support,

Rebekah Hill, his niece,
And the rest of the family.

Rebekah, thank you for what had to be a very difficult post for you! My sincere condolences to you and your family. I had only exchanged a few emails with your uncle and talked to him briefly Sunday morning, but I was looking forward to getting to know him better.

For those forum members from out of the area who may wish to attend the memorial, let me know what I can do to help with logistics.

My heart hurts for all of his family and friends. cry.gif

This is a sadness that can only be known by those of us who've been in the situation. And a good many of the Forum members have had their own "grief moments" this last year. Please understand that when we pass on our hope, prayers and wishes for peace and comfort for the family, our condolences are not empty but sincerely heartfelt.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
