CASEY FOLKS UPDATE

This has always been my favorite bereavement poem and i can just picture Casey saying these exact words . He wouldn't want us being all sad and mopey , he'd want us to celebrate the time he had and keep on racing .

Don't cry for me,
I will be okay.
Heaven is my home now,
and this is where I'll stay.
Don't cry for me,
I'm where I belong.
I want you to be happy
and try to stay strong.
Don't cry for me,
It was just my time.
But I will see you someday
on the other side.
Don't cry for me,
I am not alone.
The angels are with me
to welcome me home.
Don't cry for me,
for I have no fear.
All my pain is gone,
and Jesus took my tears.
Don't cry for me,
this is not the end.
I'll be waiting here for you,
when we meet again.

Terrible news to hear.

David, thank you for the background information about Casey that some of us may not have known him as well as you.

As imperfect humans we are saddled with the overwhelming sorrow from the death of loved ones and friends. Personally, a very close family friend that helped me and my family when I was in the hospital for my lung infection died just last night. It is soooo hard for all of us, we were not made to cope with the loss of death. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses I wholeheartedly believe in the Bible's promise of a resurrection into paradise conditions here on the earth where we will be united with the friends and family we lost in death.

The following link offers much comfort from the bible for those experiencing the sting of death.

Can the Dead Really Live Again?

Again, it is terrible news to hear about Casey and I feel for his direct family as well as his extended BITD family. If there is anything I can do to help please feel free to ask.

I am bummed. We have lost so many in our racing family in the past months. So many!

Casey, race in peace brother. You were an icon, a leader, our mentor. God Bless you.

Diane and all at BITD, What can I do to help?

He had a away of talking you into doing what you wanted too even when you were sacred out of your mind..When I first looked into racing, I met him and I had always thought there was no way I could ever do this crazy sport. Me being some young kid at the time, after sitting and talking to him for a bit. He made me a member of BITD and was getting me ready for my first MC race. I hadn't even had a bike yet and he had me signed up. It's the personal touches that made him so cool.. and you know his heart was in it for all of us. Yes he was a hard ass, but had to be so that we all do this crazy thing we did. Every time we see that sign, we will know you are watching out for us..Roost in Peace Amigo..
