Dear Friends,

Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers, and support for my father over the last several months. All of your visits and love helped to keep him going for as long as he did. He died yesterday evening peacefully at home. At his request we will not be having memorial service for him, but request that you all celebrate his life in a manner that you feel he would wish. Special thanks to Barb, Troy and Tom S., for making such a difference and being so supportive for my dad and family through this difficult time.

Louie Raynor,
Captain Chaos

We are so thankful for the time we got to spend with everyone, especially Harry, last summer at the Rally. Harry was the deciding factor to stay in the USA for that gathering and we are so honored to have known him. We are always riding with our 'Gruver' riding family in our thoughts. It is a special group that really looks out for its own. Thanks for being part of that Harry. You have make a difference in how we all live.

Cathy and Captn C we hope to see you at future gatherings as you are a part of this family...

I was born a child prodigy but, I grew out of it at an early age....

I'm in no shape to be exercising.

If bicycling was good for fat people, you'd see more of them doing it.

Rest in Peace Bro. Our thoughts are with you and the family CC.

RELIGION is like a Penis.
It's okay to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try to shove it down my children's throats.

We will all miss you, Harry

So sorry to read this message. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of a great friend.

We will have to set the D2D "empty chair" at the head table for Harry this year.

Gruve on Harry

I'd like to say something but words just don't come.

I am honored to have called Harry a friend, pleased to have had the chance to ride with him and will miss his wit and bad jokes.

Cathy and Louie if you need anything you know the gruvers will be there to help-just ask.
