"Hi Drew,

It's me again... biker chick Sue.  I received your name on last year's 2 Million Bikers to DC run to honor the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on our country.

It's been a year since I "met" you, and I just wanted to stop by to let you know that I haven't forgotten you.  I had to get a new leather biker vest, and the FIRST patch I carefully removed and sewed onto the new vest was you name.  As promised, you still ride with me every time I am on the bike; you were with me at Rolling Thunder in DC this past May and you were with me on 9/11/14, the 2nd biker run to DC.  

God bless you up there in Heaven, Drew.   Oh and by the way, if you happen to run into Kurt Cobain, please say hi for me.  :-)

Love always,
Sue"

"Hey Drew!  This is Sue, the biker sister who rode with your name on my helmet in the 2 Million Bikers to DC run on 9/11/13.  I just wanted to stop by today to wish you a Happy Birthday in Heaven... and Happy Easter, too!   It's motorcycle season again, so as I am out and about, remember that you are always with me on my leather vest in the form of your name on a patch sewed onto my vest.  When people ask me about your name patch, and I am honored to be able to tell them your story.   I look forward to meeting you in Heaven some day.  

Love Always,
Sue"

"2 MILLION BIKERS TO DC - All of us who rode out of Harley Davidson in DC today received a sticker with the name of a 9/11 victim to place on our helmets to honor that fallen brother or sister. My person was Andrew J. Bailey. I didn't want Andrew to be just a name to me, so when I got home tonight, I researched him. I was proud to ride in honor and memory of you today, Drew."

"LOVE; It doesnt travel, but it arrives. It doesn't hit, but it hurts. You can't touch it, but you can feel it. You don't make it, but you build it. You don't plant it, but it grows. You don't look for it, but you find it. You don't ask for it, but you give it. It isn't explained, but you understand....love is the very thing can make you the happiest but destroy you the most."
