He said the city has collected bikes of all sizes and types, "from very good condition to poor condition," adding that many of bikes need some repair work.

Pretty flower arrangements on pedestals, soft lighting and white surrounded Amy. A gathering of family and friends. Sound like a wedding? Amy wasn't wearing the white. She was dressed in jeans and a favorite lime green sweater. Her lush brown hair framed her beautiful face and came down past her shoulder. Amy was lying in a white-lined casket! The first pair of jeans the undertaker tried on her were too low cut to cover the autopsy scar. You see Amy died from a drug overdose. She was 24 years old. Such a senseless waste of a young life. She was so bright and could have had such a future if only she hadn't been caught up in the plague that has seized our world.
