I was with Mr. Perry moments after his accident. I am grateful for the training I have received from the military that enabled me to take control of the scene around him and pray over his body as he slipped away. I will never forget his face, his labored breathing or the beat of his failing heart. I hope that if something like this happened to me, cars would stop instead of honk at the inconvienence I was to them. Share a comforting word and lie to me saying that everything was going to be okay as my light slowly faded. You would be my comforter, my last image of this beautiful life, and the witness to my humanity. Thank you for reading this and thanking you for writing this article this article. For the last couple of days I had no way to express this.

Wow Patrick, that made me cry. I knew Bruce and he was a great guy and im sure he was thankful you stopped and tried helping him and was just there with him. He loved riding his motorcycle and traveled the world on it. My heart goes out to his family and his wife Peggy. I am so sorry.

I knew Bruce's wife Peggy for years. I only met Bruce a couple of times but he made Peggy happy. I was grateful that she had at last found the love of her life. It makes me sad that she had so little time with him. I'm glad to read that Bruce was not by himself when he was hit. Bruce was hit by a car a couple of years ago and has been on the road to recovery from that accident. Let's all be aware of drivers on motorcycles.
