Postscript from Dave...

Final thoughts on the 'Ride to Francis'
By Dave Christi 
Dave and Francis at
Rocky Mountain National Park, 1999
4,198.80. I'll always remember that number as it represents a significant time in my life that was focused on a significant individual - Francis David Sommer. I still think about various aspects of the trip - from the first lightning storm in the Pocono mountains to the serene ride through Iowa's farmlands - and I'll never forget Memorial Day 2013 as I laid Francis's wreath at his graveside. All these memories were augmented by my friendship of the Sommer family, which has endured over 45 years for which I've been honored to be part of. Francis is dearly missed but I also know that he misses your great family as well....
