Revision to Staging info: RC Dick Ward reports that Seton Medical would like us to park in the SOUTH side parking lot instead of the east parking lot.July 11, 2010 at 7:53 pm #2769
Nice turnout for Cpl Aragon on Saturday, 50 bikes and a few PGR cages, as well as many friends and family members, making for a long procession. The funeral home was lined with Old Glory, and every available parking place was taken.
Thank you to first time flag wrangler Mike Tilrico and to the rest of you who stood in the heat of a July afternoon for Cpl Aragon. May he and his family find peace in the Lord's embrace.
