    Default Big Al Memorial Ride - Sep 11th

    Stemming from our great loss

    RIP Big Al

    I am checking with my work to see if the nightshift guy can cover me if anything needs my attention.

    I have left a message with Al's ex-wife to get more details on the funeral/mass/wake.

    When I spoke to her Saturday she believed it was going to be Sat 11th around 11am in Novi.

    We'll run with that as a tenative time.
    Al's our buddy, and a rider to the core. So I'm riding, RAIN or shine. But all are welcome either way.
    Let's get it worked out. Once I find out the location, we'll meet down the road and arrive together in a show of support.
    Both locations TBA
    Time TBA
    Who's in?

    Ok Boys... time to rally the troops.

    I just spoke to his ex-wife Peggy, what a saint of a woman. She said that she is really looking forward to meeting the bikers. That they truely have a great positive outlook on who Al was and loved him for him. She wants their daughter to see this and see how many people loved her father. Please understand this has stiked deep with me.

    The plans are follows.

    No funeral open visitation. Al's been cremated at his wish so the following is the proceedings.

    We are meeting ahead of the mass at 0930 at the Valero Gas Station at the corner of GrandRiver & 10 Mile right off Street view of gas station

    Kickstands up at 1000 to go to his mass which is.
    11am at Church of the Holy Family for mass on meadowbrook, Novi, Mi.

    Street View of Church

    The wake after that about 1230 will be at Andiamo's in Novi.

    I want as many riders as possible to show support and show his family that we stick together. I have my work cleared so I can go. I'm in 100%.

    Who's with? What portion are you in for and will you be riding?
