This year I am riding in memory of Uncle Ed and Aunt Kim.
Uncle Ed lost his battle with brain cancer in May 2010. He was a quiet man with a big heart and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Uncle Ed loved working in his vegetable garden, enjoyed camping in Allegany with his family, and was a big fan of Willie Nelson. We all have stories about what made Uncle Ed so special to us and this ride is my way of keeping his memory alive.
Aunt Kim passed away January 2016 shortly after being diagnosed with a glioblastoma. She was a very kind and caring person who loved spending time with her family. Aunt Kim was active in the Western New York Rose Society, she began growing roses in the early 1990s. She was also a consulting rosarian, a judge at flower shows and she won numerous American Rose Society awards. I have many fond memories of the summer holidays we would spend together at their cottage on Lake Erie. Every time I see roses, I will always think about Aunt Kim and how precious life is.
