 It started out as a beautiful October Sunday morning. We woke up doing the normal things. While I was working on my schoolwork, Geno decided to go into work to help prepare for a job the next day. He planned to meet a friend later that day to take a ride.  At around 9:55  in the morning, Geno  gave me a kiss goodbye and left to go to work on his motorcycle.   As he walked outside he ran into a neighbor who said beautiful day for a ride. He said "yeah it is" with his awesome chuckle.    I decided to shower to be ready for his return.  During that time I began to feel sick and  nauseated. I finished my shower  and was ready to check on Geno.   I saw someone outside walking around our back area. Me being the nosy one looks to see what was going on and I realized it was another neighbor who had a small child and I figured she was looking for him. Again with my nosiness, I looked out the window and saw some blue and red lights .   I thought maybe it was workers putting in a new light down the road and as I stood there, I started to call Geno and open the screen door.   He did not answer the phone.   I started to text and instead did a find my iPhone.   Now I am closer to the wooded area between me  and the road. I noticed on my  find my iPhone app that Geno's location is right where I am and I know those lights are for him.   I run through the wooded area and see his bike laying on the road. I stop while all the emergency workers sort of look at me.  I look to the right see the saddle bag emptied on the road I wonder where he is and what had happened.   He's in the ambulance and I don't know what is going on.  They tell me it looks like someone made a left in front of him and instead of impact he layed the bike down.  This is how our journal begins.
