Staging Location: St. Peter Lutheran Church, FM 972 and FM 1105, Walburg.
Directions: From IH35 northbound, take exit 268 for FM 972, Walburg. At the stop sign turn right (east) on FM 972, proceed 3 miles. Church is on the left.
Staging: 9:20 am – 9:50 am
Briefing: 9:50 am, with flag line established NLT 10:00 am
Weather: Current forecast is for highs in the mid 60's, winds from the S/E 10-15 mph, 90% chance of rain with slight chance of thunderstorms.
Check this again prior to your departure.
Notes: Arrive fed and hydrated, with necessary gear for the wx. Parking is limited at the church, and a crowd is expected. At the conclusion of the funeral service we will participate in a short procession (1.5 miles) to the small cemetery, were we will be parking in grass covered black dirt. You may want to consider bringing a side stand pad since it may be very wet. As always, Semper Gumby!
Mr. Charles Braun's wife passed away about 60 days ago, so these family members have lost their mother and father in that short time. I am positive they will appreciate all the support we can give them during a very rough time in their lives.
