    What a downpour today as 4 brave patriotic Americans stood with pride to show Honor & Respect for Jessie & his family. During staging, we gathered under the hearse’s canopy to stay reasonably dry & did the same in front of the FH. As folks arrived, we were warmly thanked for braving the elements to stand in the flag line for Jessie.
    I had Don, back under the H’s canopy to off load flags and that really helped. j
    Rest in peace loyal & trusted servant & thank U for your service.
