Sadness surrounds me as I mourn you my Samurai. You will forever be with me in spirit and in each sunny day I'll see you smiling as you relax in the sun. My heart is empty since you've made the final transition. I love you now and always will.

Thanks to Don Emde, I've become aware of your talent and strenght. I'm ashamed that I don't do more with my time. I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits. Dirt Track should get a lot more TV time. The risk vs. rewards for racers isn't equal. They do it because they love it. It's hard not to repect that.
