    The Ghost

    4 hardy souls in cages arrived to stand the flag line for E4 Jones. The members of the flag line stood far beyond what was planned due to the late arrival of the family and the preacher starting the service on the walkway between the flags. The weather cooperated except for one nearby lightening bolt and mighty clap of thunder. As usual, Don had flags flying before the rest of us arrived; thanks Don.
