There is family in California, but they have elected not to attend.
What is holding this up is they are waiting for some of his close friends to come back to town.

Mr. Jones would like Big Flag bikes in front of the Funeral Home. We can move them in place after the briefing…
So, if you are coming, and you have a big flag be sure to bring it along.July 24, 2009 at 3:29 am #2053mototerryModerator
It will be an honor to unfurl my bike mounted USA flag for Jeffrey Nubbe. To further honor Mr. Nubbe's service in the US Navy I'll also be flying a 12 X 18 trunk mounted US Navy flag.
