Another Angel

Yesterday a little after noon, my Mother-in-law passed a front loader on route 9 in Chazy, NY. As she moved to the side of it, the operator began a left turn and they collided. She was thrown from her bike and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A member of the V-Twin Cruisers Motorcycle Club (Freedom, VT), Gail Herman was a wonderful woman and an amazing mother. She leaves behind a son, daughter, and 3 grandchildren.

May she ride on roads that never end.

Deepest condolences to all.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
