    The Ghost

    Different assortment of transportation today even though it was a beautiful day: 5 cages, 4 bikes: 13 souls. Also a little different was the fact that there were 2 services at the same time.
    The Pharr family came out en masse to thank everyone in the flag line prior to the start of the service.
    Thanks to all that attended and kudos to Don as usual.
