    In oppressive 100 plus heat, 9 incredible patriots, 5 on their MC’s, stood to honor Mr. Bloomberg. His son stopped & related how special it was to them that we were doing this for their father. U MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
    Among our group was Patti from Liberty Hill & long time member Keith A. from right there in Elgin. Flag Wrangler Max from Kyle, brought & staged flags. The cold drinks he supplied hit the spot. Thanks to U all for what U mean to the family.
    Rest in peace Mr. Bloomberg & thank U for your service.
