Dads Last Ride

Hello everyone, my name is Kimberly and I am here writing this with my sisters, Janell and Shelley.

    Our Dad, Ronold S. Backes gained his wings on August 31st, 2018 after he lost his fight with Lymphoma. “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31) He was only 54 years old. 
     Our Dad was an Air Force Veteran and a Biker through and through. His favorite place to be in the whole world was on the seat of his motorcycle riding free. He had an amazing heart and genuine spirit. Anyone who came in contact with Dad automatically enjoyed his presence. 
     To honor our Dad, we are organizing our "Dad's Last Ride". He will be taking his last ride in a 3 wheeled motorcycle and hearse carriage alongside his only brother, Vergil, who will be riding dads motorcycle. They had made plans to go on their first ride together on August 25th. This will be their one and only chance to get that ride in.
   This is where we ask of your help to make this riding dream possible. Please consider donating to our Dad's Last Ride that means the world to us, his children.
   The money will be used for all funeral expenses. We will also be photographing the whole experience for our memory and for all to see how you helped make this dream possible. 
    Please share this with friends, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

Thank you, 

Janell, Shelley and Kimberly
As Dad would say...
