    Thanks to all who were able to come to the service and to the cemetery. Thank you Bob for bringing the flags and water. There were fourteen of us, including a new rider.
    There was a delay at the start of the funeral service and a delay at the cemetery waiting for a pallbearer. The flag line was setup in the shade before the coach arrived and we stayed there during the service. After the service the family stayed under the tent, but, when it appeared they were going to stay longer we returned to the flag truck.
    Dick, RC
