Thanks in advance to any and all of you who can make this mission. Ralph Bailey was my (and my brother's) neighbor and friend for over 25 years. He was and is truly one of a kind. A great man who gave of himself all his life. As long as a month ago he was still riding one of his 2 bikes and enjoying his other toys. Still working his business M – F early morning till 6 PM. Thanks again. See you at the mission.
Even though it was a very short notice, we still had 4 show up to hold flags & horor Mr. Bailey. We did the same at the internment. After the service, 3 of us went on to Elgin for that service.
Thanks to all for your caring.
