Each ride-day the Light the Trail team will #Ride4 a victim of suicide to honor and celebrate their life, and to further healthy conversation about this important topic. If there’s someone you’d like us to #Ride4, please visit the #Ride4 page.

Tell us about them…

My soul mate, who taught me to believe in myself, the father of our two beautiful children. He became my ex-husband after a very difficult choice of - kids well being, mine or his. I walked away from a man I loved deeply. He suffered from bi-polar disorder. He had a huge heart. Loving, affectionate, funny, smart and never knew a stranger. Both of my children carry on his good traits. The gift of song (daughter) and of gathering/leading (son). He’s been gone 11 years. How we all wish he was still around to share in our lives.

How has your perspective of depression and suicide shifted over time?

It hasn’t changed much and our lives continued on as best we can with an empty place in all of our hearts that only God can fill/mend and provide strength to carry on.

A small special way we can celebrate them on the road?

When you see an eagle fly in the sky say hello.

Is there a particular favorite song or band of theirs, or one you remember them by?
