Thank you for the link, Walter. It's a lovely tribute. I hope you find writing 200 notes comforting as it's nice so many people cared and wrote. I have had a busy school holiday, spending a week in Brisbane with my uncle who has asbestosis and is close to the end of his life. On 7th I am going to Darwin again to see Loretta. I'm thinking of you all as I go about these things.

I did what I said I woud do Janie.  Debbie helped me obtain a pretty little rose and we placed it on a chair under the pavillion where you and Walt were often seen sitting over the years.  It remained there all week undisturbed and everyone saw it.  You were remembered Janie, you were missed.  You should have seen the glory of nature on the Blue Ridge.  It would have caused you to weep at the beauty.  The thousands of trees adorned in their fall splendor was poetry to the eye. 

Rest now Janie.

Thank you Scott. Your gesture brought a tear to my eye.


Your're welcome Walt ...see you next Spring/Summer.  We'll get something organized and ride to NJ.  Some kind of memorial visit and ride to Jane's resting place.

This is a must.

Scott - be sure to keep us posted on whatever you plan... I would like to be part of it.



I've been looking at the New Jersey map.

The way I see it [right now] is we'll all hook up at a motel in or near Freehold then ride over to Walt's place the next morning, visit Jane's resting place, then all go have a big meal with Walt and any of his family and friends he'd like to invite.  We'll stay that night then depart for our homes the next morning.  That makes it a two day event.  Count riding time and for some folks [like me] it could be as much as a six day sojourn.  I can provide free lodging in Eastern Ohio or Western Pennsylvania out and back for several people who might be taking the same route I do.

I'll be doing some research to identify lodging in NJ.

Not everyone whom wants to participate may be able after a date is set, that's unavoidable, but we'll thrash it around here while the bikes are parked for the winter and come up with a time when its best for most that desire to participate in [this] endeavor.



You bet Solo.

1.  I would be honored to join you.

2.  We have room in Fredericksburg, VA for several folks taking the south to north route.  Little less than 250 miles to Freehold.


Copy that Craig.

I expect it will unfold in time into something superb.
