    Sir, Please stand tall for me too on this mission. I am enrolled in a Motorcycle Safety Course Sat. and Sun. I wish I could be there but please give his family my best wishes and support for this Hero and may God always be with them.


    Thanks to everyone who attended Larry Goodwill's service yesterday and braved the heat to do so. Since there were no military honors provided, it was fitting that we had "21" flags flying before the service, and rendered "salutes" when his casket departed the church. Your response to the short notice and flexibility during the extended church service was outstanding. At the cemetery, the family expressed their sincere appreciation for your attendence.
    Thanks to J.C. for taking the flags and water, Greg for helping with the flag line and water, and Bud for being our tail gunner.
    You all made me very proud to be a Patriot Guard Rider!
