Although the Ride has been put on hold for this year, the need for money to support the research and other activities of Heart and Stroke has not gone away, So Lynda and I are going to continue to raise money for the cause. We are asking everyone who would normally support our ride to continue to contribute.
As most of you know, heart disease has been a big factor in my life. My father died at 43, when I was 9. My mother had her first attack at 49, and lived the rest of her life with pain. And just last year my friend and bridge partner died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack.
