A 'soon' farewell to our friend

To our Chrysler fans, some of you may already know, our very own Hemidakota's health is failing and may soon come to end; as he said, "I will be called home soon..." We were told two weeks ago, Steve's last 'brain attack' almost ended his life while driving to Vista California middle of the night. He felt a sensation that started from his crown and began to shut down all body functions while driving his truck. Luckily for us, he managed to pull over to the emergency lane, while his heart stopped for brief time. We only suspect it was do to his endearing faith and devotion to his god, in sustaining him to remain a short awhile longer. For those who follow him

over the last few years, will note his love for his god and his family, are reminded, this was not the first time he touch death doors for few moments; as he stated.

He knew this would eventually come soon or later. He did state, in our one-on-one conservation, the savior [Jesus Christ] has given him three year probation in preparing his large family, his grandchildren, and his close associates.

When that day approaches and when it does happen, we will cease this blog and accounts that has provided some inside and note worthy news of the Chrysler LLC, in honoring of his departure.

Mike and the Team.

Hemi, You may never know how much of an impact you had on all of us at srtforums.com. I looked forward to every post you made and will miss seeing them in the future. I know that when the unfortunate time comes that you will be looking down on us through a big smoky cloud of burning rubber on the big drag strip in the sky.
