The PGR provided a flag line of five to honor Mr. Morgan. Thanks to Scott and Colton for accompanying the hearse flying their big flags from Lampasas to the cemetery. Thanks to Mario and Frank for being at the cemetery with me to display three flags for the arrival of the procession. An extra shout out to Frank for also wrangling the flags and providing water. The family was most appreciative…July 2, 2013 at 12:57 am #4178
I just wanted to take a minute and say thank you. It meant a lot to my family and especially my Grandmother to have you guys there on a tough day. My grandfather loved his bikes and was proud of his service.
My Grandmother especially liked the flag bikes escorting us in from Lampasas. Without having Leo all the way in, the bikes kept guard. She said grandpa would have like it and asked that I give her thanks.
I was proud to do a mission before. Seeing it from this side makes it all the better.
