While I even cry over some of the losses, I see them more as men who paid the ultimate price for their passion. Death and defying it was part of their make up...to dance with death and walk away to dance another day was a glorious thing and if one day you did not walk away...well the dance was fun while it lasted. :( <img src="http://www.f1.ultra.pl/Strona/makabrk/porcja3/78monza2.jpg" alt=" - " />
