Thoughts of Kevin Feeney  

It is with a heavy heart and many tears that I share the passing of my best friend Bob Herrick. He has been taken from us all to soon but I trust god has a bigger plan for him. He always had a heart of gold and willing to lend a hand to anyone and will truly be missed. Bob was strong spirited right up to the end and passed peacefully. There will not be an immediate service however a memorial service will be planned in the near future for friends and family.

Our thoughts and prayers are also with the family of Vance Weedon, another good friend that we lost yesterday after a heroic fight.

It has been a rough start to the new year and I can only have comfort in the fact that God must be building one hell of a new race team!

Please keep the families of Bob Herrick, Bev Lower and Vance Weedon in your thoughts and prayers!

Gods speed my friends!!!
