    What a nice turn out for a week day. Thanks to all 16 of you. I guess U could tell how much it ment to the family & friends U were there.


    On behalf of the Lasseter family, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Patriot Guard Riders who stood a flag line at the memorial service for our departed dad/grandfather/husband/brother/uncle on July 9th. The line of flags in front of the church was a beautiful and touching sight.

    Many complimentary remarks were made by friends and family who had never heard of the PGR. We were all amazed that people who didn't even know him would take the time and effort to honor him in such a lovely way. One of the grandsons also remarked on how quietly and respectfully your members departed as the service started. He didn't think so many motorcycles could be that quiet!

    Again, heartfelt thanks for the service you so graciously bestow. It was really quite special.

    The Family of Robert E. Lasseter
