From Saturday Sep 4th.
*couldn't post cause the site was down*




It is with the deepest of agony that I must tell you that my dear dear friend Big Al / Alicat (http://www.2wheelmichigan.com/forums/member.php?u=249) has passed. Around 5 am he left us to be with God. He left all the pain and suffering that had been with him for the past year or so, but has moved on to better things. He died peacefully in his sleep with his mother near at his house.

I cannot express how much this sadens me to live with this and to have to tell you all. He was such a great man. A man that enjoyed the simple things. His motorcycle, good friends and great times. And boy did he do all of that. He always told me that he lived LIFE to the fullest. He didn't care what the doctors said, he was going to enjoy it till he couldn't physically do it anymore, then die happy. The man is good to his word.
I myself, have known him just as long as anybody here. In only a handfull of years he was one of my truely honest to good friends. One of those people that from day one, my wife and I, just "clicked" with. He right up till the last time I spoke with him, loved the story of the day we all first met.

Al, you will be missed bud. YOU WILL BE MISSED!!

I will get more info on his services next week. But what I can tell you is that he is being cremated and there will be a catholic service in Novi on Sat 11th then a wake. I will post more when I know it. I plan on doing 110% to get to at the very least the wake and baring a snow storm in Sep, I'm riding. Rain or shine.

Now let's hear some stories of our great bud and some pics.
for now all I can give you is some great pics of him. That's simply all I can do for now.

I know many of you don't know him. The big dog guys that post around here do.

Any of you are welcome to help in the showing of how bikers are and how we stick together. This group of guys that frequently ride with me are some of the best, most honest to God guys you will ride with. Please come if you wish.

Chris, I take it this the Alicat that posted a few times here, right when the Big Dog guys came over?

I'm really sorry to hear of this. I can't make any guarantees, but will try and work this into the day. If I can make it we'll touch base and meet up somewhere for the ride up to the meetup spot.

He has been sick for quite some time.
