    I'll try and keep this short and sweet, but yesterday my best friend and mentor passed away at Pismo. He was involved in a single vehicle accident and passed away doing what he loved. He was my mentor, my best friend, and I miss him more than words can convey. He has a very loving family and I come here to ask for your guys prayers and thoughts in this time of need. Thank you.

    PS. Never miss an opportunity to tell someone that you love them. You never know when youll get the chance to do it again. :(

    Wow, so sorry to hear. I was in Pismo yesterday and heard the sirens. Not saying it was the same accident but every time I hear or see first responders heading somewhere with lights on I say a little prayer.

    Stay strong buddy.
