    My brother and I can not make the service but we will get to the cemetery and wait there until you all arrive. We will keep Bob company and out of trouble.



    A big big thank you to the 16 patriots including flag wrangler Bobby that showed up today. It was diffiently a Semper Gumby day. Once again we had another 1st time rider who is also in the Air Force Reserves.

    Family was very much appreiative of our presents & related how much "Sandy " would have loved it. Due to his wife's situation, a request was made of us to have 2 PGR escort her to her house as it was to difficult for her to attend the grave side service. Thanks to the 2 volunteers.

    Again, thanks to all. We do make a difference.
