    On a pleasant spring afternoon we had eight in the flag line today to honor the service of Mr. Bob Lipsey. One was Paul Larson, a PGR from Mission, TX who was on hand to honor his friend today. Thank you for standing the flag line with us.

    Thanks also to Lance Owen for bringing the flags and for staking them in front of the funeral home in advance. We formed the line at 1:15 to be in place as people arrived for the visitation prior to the funeral service. Once the funeral service began we departed. Thank you to all who attended.

    RIP, SFC Lipsey.
