As I was walking around this morning I saw a giant cutout of a man. First I thought it was a promo for a country singer but after awhile I realized it wasn't. 

Debbie Smith, of Conyers, Ga., was carrying a life-size cutout picture of her late husband Anthony. He died of a heart attack in January 2014. Their dream trip was to make their first trip to the rally for the 75th Sturgis motorcycle rally with their two friends. After his death Debbie and the two friends still came to the rally but she didn't want to leave Anthony behind so she brought the cutout of him. Also joining her on the trip was her son and his wife.
