But none of it seems to matter much. Paul Nelson, my first boss at Georgia State Parks, was on his motorcycle driving to work when someone pulled out in front of him. He was rushed to Grady, but died during surgery. I am almost in tears I have so many feels. I just can't... I mean, his wife had made him give up the bike until his son reached 18. That happened just before I left, and he was so excited to be getting a motorcycle again. We talked about his and Jason's bikes and I know he loved riding.

He was a gentle man who had a soft spot a mile wide. He was also very anal. He taught me how to be more detailed. He is the only man I have ever known to actually pick up on the fact I had a migraine and comment on it, telling me to go home and rest. (My husband included!)

I am so sad for his family. I am so glad Jason sold his bike.

Jason said that he died "doing something he loved". I hate when people say that. Sure, he liked to ride, but I honestly think he wasn't thinking "Wow, I love this!" as he slammed into the side of that car.

Take a moment to be extra careful and look twice as you drive around in the coming days.

:( I loved my motorcycle, but I didn't love the other drivers on the road who never saw me. I'm sorry.
