Hi all,
This is hard for me to write, but here goes.

My son, Thomas, died last night. While he was a long time bike rider, he did not go out while riding, but from a short lived illness.

I probably won't be here for a while.

Jon (and family),

I kept writing and re-writing this post because none of the fully conveyed the deep sadness for both you and your family with the death of your son. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prays today.

If there is anything we can do for you or your family, please do not hesitate to let us know.

I just changed the picture at the top of the forum.

It is not a picture of a Silverwing or picture of someone traveling on a Silverwing. The picture is from Jon Callihan's website www.joncallihan.com .

Every time you bring up the Silverwing forum, there will be a constant reminder for Jon and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

I am just seeing this, Jon. I am so very sorry. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child, no matter the age. Please know so many of us on the Swing forum are sending love and prayers to you and yours. Take care and we'll be here to offer what support we can when you return.

I am very sorry.

Bill,

Thanks for the tribute. We said goodbye to him today. I'm glad that the lead picture is something real again.

Jon

PS, I think that I had something to do with this photo as well.

In the sense that you encouraged my first ride to Monument Valley, Jon, you certainly did.

Welcome back, and please know that many of us here continue to send prayers on behalf of you and yours.

I am late here and a newbie to this site, but not a newbie to life. This is tough stuff. I wish I could remember who this quote was from, but I live by it:

"The tears of adversity are the telescopes to the heavens."

I hope you can smile again soon.
