This doesn't have anything to do with Sedona Real Estate, Sedona land or sedona investing but rather driving a motorcycle, motorbike, even a vespa and wearing a helmet when you do.  This has to do with remembering my dear, sweet, wonderful brother Dr. Tom Hooyman, who choice not to wear  a helmet one beautiful fall afternoon in Denver two years ago today and the impact that his  sudden and early death had on so,  so many people. Including his wife, two great sons, brothers, sister, neices, nephews, colleagues, friends and 89 year old father.  Funny how 1 simple thing can change your life forever.  Yes, I know you feel bad. Yes, I know that could never happen to you - cause..."You're are just going around the corner", "you're careful", "you're going slow", ... and "nothing" will happen.  Let me tell you "S... happens".  So just for today, and tomorrow, humor me and wear a helmet.  So that the people you love can see your sweet and smilin face every day and not have to remember it.  So for today and tomorrow - here's to my older brother Tom  - A whistler, a dreamer, a do gooder - One of the good guys - truely.
