Dear Betty, Betty, you may not remember me. We met at an MTA (Motorcycle Tourism Alliance) meeting in October at the Knuckle. I was invited by Ross Lamphere to present information on MTA to your group. I very much enjoyed meeting both you and Roger that evening, and appreciated the insights your husband shared during the discussion. My condolences to you and your family.

Sad to hear that Beck is dead. Roomed with him in college. Funny guy. Good guy. Told me he'd be a millionaire before he reached 30. Looked him up to find out if he made it.
