RIP dear friend

For the last 5 years I have had the pleasure of traveling all over the country with a friend named Mark Moyer. Mark was a moderator on (his screename and the name most called him by was Passinthru) and one of my closest friends.
This past weekend we were at his house preparing for a weekend ride around WV. Mark had a massive heart attack. I performed CPR on him for over 10min until the paramedics got there but he was non responsive and passed away.
Mark and I had ridden an estimated 60,000+ miles together and you couldn't have asked for a better person to be a friend. Mark's passion for riding was something to behold. Never asking any more than my presence, he was an excellent rider, a loving father to his daughter Kayla and one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
If any of you have ever paid attention to pictures I posted from my rides, Mark's bike was the silver Kawasaki ZZR1200 that was in most pictures I took on these rides.
He will be dearly missed by all that had the distict pleasure of meeting him or riding with him.
He and I were planning a two week trip to the Dakotas and Wyoming next month.

Now I once again ride alone. RIP Mark. I love you buddy.

The only thing between want and did is do

Re: RIP dear friend

RIP, thats awful, things like this often happen without warning and theres really nothing more you can do about it at the point, unfortunately.

How did you know he was having a heart attack? Did he suddenly just collapse or what?
