The SCRC visited George today

Unfortunately I have a lot of trouble uploading pictures. But hopefully including a link will work.

Copy of Dave's e-mail who organized this special surprise for George's 100th birthday:

What a day. A few of us meet for breakfast and then rode over to the home to visit George. He was sitting out front in his wheelchair with his daughter waiting for us. The strange thing about numbers are that they repeat themselves. George had owned 7 motorcycle in his life, and we had 7 come to visit with him. When we lined up the bikes he rolled past them for an inspection, as you see we had one of every style there.
John gave George a membership certificate and membership card making him an honorary SCRC member at the spry age of 99.99 as he turns 100 on Friday.
John and his wife went for a ride with me after the visit. All I all it was a very good day, never above 52 but about 110 miles.
Thanks Dave Meister



Bummer, even attaching a pici doesn't seem to work. HELP!!!! Tom, can you upload/attach it?

He's linking to photos from an outside source (something that Ray suggested to Pam recently when requesting photos of her YSR). I only said that I couldn't upload any pics, here.

Thank you! I will never forget the look on George's face when he saw us pulling up. He made me smile!

Re: The SCRC visited George today

I need to report that George passed away last night in his sleep. He had a good full life, any one that can run their life into triple digits is doing something right.

God speed George!!!!!

Re: The SCRC visited George today

Remember the daughter of George? I think she may be 67 now and retired from where we worked together. I got the message below from her. She is always up to something and helping others live their lives a little fuller. You can immediately say you are a better person just from knowing her. WAY TO GO EMMA!!!!!

Today was a HOOT!! Took a 80 yr old man & his 86 yr old bride of 5 weeks with my neighbor, Corrie, (16 yr old girl), to the Freedom Center. We ate lunch there and then Corrie & I pushed the bride & groom all over the place in their wheel chairs!! The one show is an animation and when the lights came on, both the bride & groom were SOUND asleep in their chairs!!
