Lindy is gone too soon for me to believe it. I met her and Mike at Suffolk Raceway many years ago. They were wonderful to be around. I, along with all the other guys who raced motorcycles were jealous that Mike had a fast motorcycle and beautiful wife to hang out with. I visited Lindy in the hospital after their accident. It was heartbreaking. I have a picture of Mike and Lindy that I would like to send to anybody related to them. I am Wally Damon at 2242 Greenwell Road, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23455. Call me if you would like at 757-918-6662. Peace be with you.
