Memorial Service (Celebration of Life) on Maidera Beach, Florida for a Dear Friend

Hey fellow bloggers,

A week ago on Sunday, September 27th one of the groups I belong to.. ‘ ‘The Tampa Bay Adventurers” had a memorial.sevice for our beloved friend “TJ” who committed suicide back in late March just near the start of the Covid Pandemic. No one saw thus comming! “TJ”  was a very personable guy and so caring and loved by everyone. No one had  any idea nor were there  any signs that he was vulnerable to take his own life? “TJ” was the group’s volley ball couch and was also designated to become the leader or the “Tampa Bay Adventurers”. He was found at the shore of Honeymoon Bay in  Dunedin Fl. Apparently one evening he took his Kayak out on the water and inflicted a gun shot wound to his head. So sad.

Our group has been waiting so long to have this memorial service, but due to Covid restrictions we had to wait. Since the beaches in Florida were now open we thought it was as good a time as any to do this outdoor service.

There will be a nice memorial bench that we have ordered in memory of “TJ” and with the approval of Maderia Beach park officials it will be permanently installed in a few weeks by the beach and walkway.

Enjoy the videos… especially of my friend “Dave”the vocolist who wrote and sang an original song in “TJ’s” honor.

Also, wanted to let yoi know that Terry’s father “Don”  passed away earlier his week in the Dallas area. He is now at peace in Heaven with his beloved Terry our dear friend. Both Don and Terry are smiling down upon us all and watching over us. Their spirits remain forever in the hearts of family, friends and others they’ve impacted throughout their lives on Earth   With Loving memory, Gary

Bike Ride to Philippe Park and downtown Safety Harbor, Florida

Hey fellow bloggers. Last night I ventured on another one of my long bike excursions… this time to a beautiful nature park in Safety Harbor, Florida. The bike ride was so enjoyable and the area has a rich history. The park was originally founded by a French aristocrat from Leon, France just a few years after the start of the start of the French Revolution. Besides my selfie videos of the actual park and downtown Safety Harbor, I am going to include a couple of other videos that will explain much more about this wonderful park and Safety Harbor. Enjoy the videos and have a great day and please stay safe and be well! Gary

Please bear in mind as I was doing the selfie video in the park I was also filming it to send out to a meetup group of mine as a possible site for a future potluck and social.

Also, despite mentioning in one of the above videos that I was going to also do a film showing some of the mega mansions along the way on my trip back, after viewing that video it came out too dark for you to see and appreciate. So I’ll redo it and show you in another blog in the future.
