Unhappy I have very sad news about Doug Sorchilla

It is with great sorrow, and tears in my eyes, that I am reporting that my dearest friend Doug Sorchilla suffered a massive stoke and was taken to the neuro ICU. He was non-verbal and non-responsive at times.
The doctors found he also has pneumonia and a bladder infection and as of earlier this morning Doug was put on morphine drip to make him comfortable as he passes away.
Doug and his wife Vickie were regular CCR attendees, as well as the Cambria and Fort Bragg rides organized by David Taylor
Vickie asked me to post the news on our forum as Doug was a long time member and has many friends here and on the K1600 sister forum.
Please keep Vickie in your thoughts and prayers...

For her I climbed the highest mountain!
For her I swam across the deepest ocean!
For her I walked through the largest desert!
And then she left me... She said I was never home!!!
