    Nine riders met the family in Bastrop for the ride to his daughter’s house. (It was a little damp for some of us getting there.) One of the bikes was ridden by his grandson, Travis, and a new rider Patty from Liberty Hill on her Spyder. We had a nice turnout of American Legion riders join us, too. Mr. Jensen was a long time member. All totaled four first time riders on this mission. Very nice!

    Five of us stayed for the memorial service, forming a flag line while the US Army honor guard played taps and folded and presented the flag. We hung around afterward for refreshments with the family who couldn’t be nicer folks.

    Thank you again, Max Vasquez, for bringing the flags, and for persevering in finding the place!

    We learned the many ways Dell Jensen was a true patriot. It was our honor to participate in his farewell.
