Just got this from Carl in thanking Triumph Talk members for being there.
We raised over $500 to send to Carl for his immediate needs.

Thank you, thank you, Triumph Talk family. Thank you Kerry for coming up.It was an honor and a pleasure to meet you. Yes, I, too, think we will be close. I have a lot of thanks to give; but right now I cannot see my keyboard. I will post later. God bless you all.

Thank you for the link, it shows how well loved she was by the amount of people there and hopefully Carl can come through this with happy memories of their time together. :)

Many thanks for sharing these poignant images with us.

"Riding With Angels" is a most fitting epitaph; rest in peace Mae Lyn and may you, Carl, soon find peace of mind.

To my SevenForums family and friends. There are no words that can adequately express my appreciation and gratitude for your caring, your prayers, your thoughts, your cards, your telephone calls, and last but not least your posts. From the bottom of my soul, I thank you.

It took me a while to get the strength to come to this thread and I have found it moving, but uplifting and comforting. Unless you have walked in these moccasins, you can't know how special this is.

I had taken a part time job and had taken a break to go to NC and open up the farm house, repair any winter damage, etc. I left home at oh dark thirty on 12 Aug and rode 568 miles (914 kilometers) straight through. Mae Lyne and Dad were to join me on Thursday.

We have no internet nor cell phone service in the NC mountains. Around 8:30 PM a deputy sheriff pulled up in the yard to ask me to call my sister ASAP. Dad had found Mae Lyne about 5:30 - 6:00 PM. She was still warm; but not breathing. It will be a couple of months before we know the cause.

This is a letter I had read at he celebration of life. There is no way I could have read it. A close friend did so for me. I had actually given Mae Lyne similar love letters over the course of our marriage and I had told her these things many, many times - and she reciprocated.

My darling Mae Lyne, God sent you into my life just before a very difficult time. Somehow, a free spirit, flower child of the 60's fell in love with a crusty old career soldier. You were my rock when my world was shattered. You have stood beside me on the flag lines, supported me when I was State Captain, and encouraged me to again become Assistant State Captain. You served as my Spanish interpreter and you reached out to those bereaved families for whom we stood. You loved me unconditionally, warts and all. You went way beyond the call of duty. God blessed me with 10 years of a fantastic, loving relationship. But more importantly than being my wife, you were and are my sister in Christ.

I could ramble for hours about that the laughter, the joy, the trials, the victories, the sorry, and the tears that we shared. My life with you at Princess Place Preserve was heaven on earth. I thank you for all you have given and done for me and I hope that I was able to return that love and giving in like measure. We shared the eagles, the deer, the foxes, the bobcats, the anhinga’s and the myriad of bird life. We delighted in the wild flowers in the spring and summer. We took the time to stop and smell the roses. You brought me indescribable joy.

Now my world is again shattered and you are no longer physically by my side. In His infinite wisdom, God saw fit to call you home. You are healed, my Darling, no more pain. And for that I praise Him. But I miss you so very much. You have left a big hole in our lives. We miss your smile, your love, your selfless caring, and I miss those beautiful long, red braids. I will see you again one day. Feast in heaven, my love, sing and dance until we meet again. Godspeed. I love you. I love you.

Your loving husband,

Our wedding was an American Indian traditional Muskogee wedding. Here is my lovely bride.

I am hurting; but I am doing pretty well. Today is a good day. I went for a good therapeutic ride (you never see motorcycles in a shrink's parking lot!). Other than riding Mae Lyne's rig to her service. This was the first time I have ridden since I got back to Florida. I will not ride if I cannot be fully alert and concentrate on what I am doing.

Having walked this road before, I know it is a long road - sometimes sunny and smooth and sometimes stormy with a lot of pot holes. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I will be back with my wonderful SevenForums family. I will heal.

God bless you all.
