    If anyone wants to grab breakfast before the mission meet at 7:30 am at the IHOP on the southbound IH35 frontage road in Round Rock. Between 3406 and 79.

    As it happens the VP of Operations for PGR National, Herb Parsons, is a close friend of the family and will be riding down for the funeral and be joining us for breakfast. It would be a good opportunity to ask him questions about what goes on at National and in other parts of the country, get and give some advice, etc.


    15 flags, 11 riders & 3 cagers. Nice turn out. We always ask who came the furthest. This time, Herb Parsons, a close friend of the family, rode all the way from the Ft Worth area. He also happens to be VP of Operations of PGR National. Some of us met at the I-35 RR I-Hop for breakfast & some great fellowship. It was great hearing what is happening at national.
    Deputy State Captain, Mark W. passed around a nice card for us to sign & will present it later to the family. Several family & friends walked the flag line & thanked each of us personally. I know I speak for all of us when I say, It is truly an honor to stand for this AF veteran & her family.
    Fly forever Margaret.


    From the family of Margaret Rodriquez:
