He certainly did leave a legacy!

Ive followed this thread since the start and sad to read this today. Although I haven't checked in for a while I sometimes while feeling stuck in the regular routine of my life would think of his story and his ambition. He had life figured out.
There's a lot of people stuck in the routine and not living. Sometimes people don't see what's important until it being taken from us.

RIP Jon

Hey Dennis,

I'm glad you checked your spam folder! I should have just emailed you directly. I just came back from Indy motogp. It was a nice trip overall. I wish I could have rode on the track instead though. Things are still going well. Sometimes I even lose some of that urgency. But that's not how I want to live. I'm doing the best I can, but living right is hard.

You don't need to live for anyone but yourself. The important part is to be in touch with what really matters to you and to fight for it with all your heart.

Take care. I'm here if you ever need to talk,

Jon
Sometimes I forget what barf is really about...

Thank you Dennis for sharing the quoted post. And thank you Jon for having shared so much. When read in context, your words are a sobering reminder of what's truly important.

Typo. Meant to write "So awesome." Not sure how that came out and definitely not appropriate.
