In Memory Of Paul Regan

My dearest friend, Paul Regan, died at home in Barrie, Ontario, this morning after a long, life-sustaining battle with cancer. He was 56. Paul was surrounded by his family and many friends.
Paul wasn't a cyclist, although he did occasional ride a bike. But his life was a wonderful ride, even over the last 15 years, when he taught us all how to live life even when an insidious illness made that a challenge.
I wore my yellow LiveSTRONG bracelet for Paul; I put one on Paul's wrist. I'll continue to wear mine in his memory.
I'll be leaving for Barrie on Wednesday and offline while I celebrate Paul's life with his family and friends. The picture you see is of Paul and me about 15 years ago on Georgian Bay in Ontario.

Thanks, granny. He was the kind of guy who would have climbed to col just to be there with everyone else. A real teammate.
