    Please attend to honor this veteran and show our gratitude to his family for his service to our country.


    70% rain chances for this mission tomorrow, so feel free to cage it to the funeral home. A little rain on the flag line never hurt anyone.


    We had eight PGR this morning to honor Mr. Moran, five bikes and three cages. The rain was never a factory, more of an intermittent mist. Besides, we stood under the generous overhang/porch area which runs along the front of the building.

    Thank you to those who attended, and may God's peace be upon Mr. Moran and his family.
