After mission report: What an outstanding turn out today. We had 40 plus folks there & even one from a mass that had just ended who stood with us also. We were able to establish flag lines on both sides of the church entry court yard for a very impressive display. The family was VERY moved at the sight. When the herase was unloaded, the 2 flag lines closed in & formed 2 solid lines to the church entrance. It was fantastic. U guys R absolutly awesome. We had 2 active duty who play a vital part by wearing their uniforms & standing out front where the family could see them.
The trip to the church was very s l o w. Several folks turned out along the road in Liberty Hill. The grave side service was well attended with several family going down our lines thanking us. Even the police officers involved thank us for what we do for these families.
Thank you all so very very much. God Bless Hope to see you Fri. in S. Austin.
