Great turn out today. This is a family of fellow bikers, so there were several MC groups in attendance. PGR had 20 folks and the family wanted U all to know how appreciative they were of your being there for them. Thanks to both Terry & Mark for flag duty.
Thank U all very much for your patriotism.

Frank and I would like to thank everyone who attended and honored our son at his funeral on Tuesday. Frank and I are both PGR riders but seeing it from this side, what an amazing sight. It warmed our hearts to see so many riders standing in the flag line and escorting him to his final rest. To have so many friends, brothers and sisters riding was on honor to not only to Nick but us.
There is no way to ever say thank you enough.
Frank and Kay Santandrea
