    There aren't enough words to express how I felt about Cap and how much I am going to miss him. May he ride in peace now with no more pain.

    I don't know quite where to start. You left all of us so suddenly. And, it's gonna take (a lot) of getting used to,not calling you,texting,just hearing from you. But I'll see you again soon. Until then, Like Shirley said keep riding pain free, until again your face I see. I love and miss you Capp. See you soon. Love Bump.
