Dear Linda and the entire Kennedy family. I was saddened to hear about the loss of your brother Doug. I have fond memories of him and his KZ 1000. I remember that he was so proud of his motorcycle, and I looked forward to riding with him. I pray that God will give you comfort during this most difficult time.
