Like a Brother

My tattoo is for my bestfriend. More like my brother. What's mine was his and what's his was mine. I've know him for about 10 years. On March 15, 2012, I was in work on my 10 AM break. I got a call from one of my good friends who is in a club. He told me "hey you know your friend with the black camero?". So obviously he was the only of of my friends who was on the right path with the car. So I said "yeah John. Why whats up?" Without hesitation he told me he got into a bad motorcycle accident. And it wasn't looking too good. It took about 5 minutes to absorb what had happened. My dad's on the fire department and I knew he was working so I called him a few minutes later. As soon as he answered I knew it was bad. He told me the chances of him living where slim to none. I immediately left work and went to the hospital. I got there early and there was only a few friends and family. Throughout the day the entire lobby was filling up with family and friends and even a few bike clubs rolled through. For agonizing days hundreds of people came in and out of the doors. Then we got the news. John passed. On these pocketwatches is the times he was born and passed, along with the dates he was born and passed. His parents started a MOTORCYCLE AWARENESS FOUNDATION. Rememberme316.org
