Once back at our house, lunch was had by all, conversations had, high fives to Ian...the men smoked cigars and then it was time for the Lonsmen to have their ride...along with Brian. Good-byes were said, more photos taken, more people in our village...the Lonsmen are an amazing group of people who gave of themselves today...for that we will forever be grateful.

The Lonsmen Ride
Today was one of those days to put down in the books. After months of preparation, emails, phone calls and meetings; signals determined...it was here. Thru Tzvi Haber of Chai Lifeline and Mark Lobel of the ,Lonsmen motorcycle club, Ian got a ride. It was not just a ride, it was approximately 20 bikes and one with a side car. It was all about Ian, regardless of how long he could manage...the Lonsmen came out ready to ride. After getting Ian into the side car, along with me (yes for those of you who know me...I rode)...we were off. Brian followed in the van with all the equipment ready to pull over if needed. We made it about 20 minutes and it was time to head back home, Ian had done well...but the wind in his face along with the bumping of trach, he was done.
