15 bikes and one flag cage attended. Family was very appreciative. Thanks to all who attended and especially Don, our flag wrangler. It is amazing the results we get when the e-mail works.November 19, 2015 at 9:46 pm #4740
From Connie Lane
On behalf of our family, please extend a huge thank you to all who attended my Dad, Emery Lange's funeral on Friday, November 13. I will forever keep the picture in my mind and in my heart of their presence at the funeral home, at the cemetery and especially on the trip to the cemetery. I was in the car with my mother and brother, second in line after the motorcycles. Even though my heart was breaking, the picture of the guard in front and behind my Dad made my heart sing. It is something that we as a family always talked about for my Dad but when you experience it, there is a whole new perspective and appreciation for those of you who ride with the guard.
My son (Emery's grandson) went to those who carried the flag after the service at the cemetery and shook each of their hands. That really made my heart break in a whole new way.
I am grateful for all that you do.
