“Fly high, dear nephew! And say Hi to your dad,
and my dad, and the rest of our heavenly family for me. Will ya?”
You see, Alex, 23, bought this motorcycle a couple of months ago.
He went on to meet his Maker just a ways beyond this cross.
I work for Kawasaki, and I stand for Uncle Tree.
No need to imagine how I felt.
The trail of tears ended here on Highway 210, near Richmond, Missouri.
Friends and family showed up by the numbers, which made me quite proud.
An angel in the midst is always a comforting sign.
Burning one for Alex made for a righteously appropriate goodbye.
Blowing trees is like smoking tires —
they both end up taking you to the place you’d rather be.
Alex’s Nismo 370z did likewise, but now it remains as part of his legacy,
as do his skateboards and tennis shoes, and the beautiful arrangements.
“Thank you, Lord, for blessing us with such a sweet boy.”
