I write this post as a tribute to one of my friends who has sadly passed away today. Jon Aicken, or Panda as we knew him, was taken off his motorcycle in the early hours of this morning by a hit and run BMW car driver. He was declared dead at the scene. For information on this story please click this link:
Jon was a great friend, a passionate rider and a real socialite. We all liked him. He would come to our gigs, friend's birthday parties etc. He would always be about and things were so much better for his presence and having him in our lives. At 24 this is really tragic news. He had his whole life ahead of him and we only wish we had more time with him. For this to happen, especially on Christmas Eve, is heart wrenching and I would like to send my condolences to his family as I am sure all of us would.
Please spare a thought for Jon and his family this Christmas. I'd just like to say, I enjoyed all the time I ever had the pleasure of spending with him and I really hope he is now in a much better place and that you are loved there as much as you are here. Rest in peace my metal biker friend x
