We were saddened this week to learn that a husband, dad, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend lost his life during a fourth annual motorcycle trip in Arkansas. Ryan Gendreau, of Sabula, Iowa, lost his life doing exactly what he loved – riding his motorcycle. Unfortunately his death occurred much too soon as Ryan was only 35, leaving behind a wife, two small children and many other family members.

It’s always a feather in your cap as a writer to know that your submissions are read and taken seriously. As a technical writer, it is very gratifying to know that you helped others out.
