I just wanted to pass this along for all to know. Yesterday (Tuesday) I saw Mr. Bob Wessels in Austin. He is a relative of Mr. Koopmann's and was a pall bearer at the Funeral Sunday. He told that after the service he went to the Reception at the Hall across the road from the Church, as did most of the Family and Friends in attendance. He said that many of the people there had seen him talking with Keith and other PGR members during the service, so at the reception they came to him and asked "who were all those people holding the flags?" He told them who we were and what we do. They all told him how good it looked as they drove up, seeing all the flags along the road etc. Some even asked him what it took to have us attend a service if needed. So, As Keith said as we departed, Thanks to everyone who was there (in Body and\or Spirit)… "We DO Make a Difference."
