Fellow Racer Killed
« on: September 20, 2008, 01:43:07 pm »
It's with a very heavy heart that I have to write this. Greg Holman, a fellow Bueller, racer and good friend was killed last night in a motorcycle accident. I just spoke with Dana, and I still can't believe what she told me. Is it wrong for a 40 year old guy to cry? I hope not, cause I can't stop.
Greg was part of the Windy City Bueller group. I just saw him last weekend down at the MotoGP race at Indy. Would have saw him next weekend for the last race of the season.
Please say a prayer for him, his family and friends. I know I will never forget him.

Brother, praying for Greg's family and friends.  As far as crying goes, the shortest verse in the Bible is simply this, "Jesus wept".  It happened when He witnessed the deep love and sense of loss that people were experiencing from the death of their friend.  Our racing family is a tight one, the death of a bro means one of the threads of laughter, friendship and encouragement, that had been woven into all of our lives, has been removed.  A painful loss and worthy of tears.  Very sorry bro that your friend Greg has passed, but there is hope, for as much as God says it is appointed for every man to die once, in an instant,"in the twinkling of an eye", as our last breath fails, we will pass from life, unto eternal life, through Christ our Savior.

+1 to both items. No shame in crying for that...
