    The weather was good for the 11 PGR members that were in attendance to Honor MSgt Irwin "Stoney" Ingalls. A family member to me that he was the last descendant of the Ingalls "Little House on the Prairie". When the service started the flag line was dismissed. The funeral director told me that he believed that the family was wanting us to go to the grave site. I stayed and fell in behind the lead car to the cemetery. The road was grass and not knowing the conditions since it had rained I pulled over at the entrance and stood by my bike with my flags flying to show respect for the family members as they drove by then I quietly put up the flags and drove away. Thanks to all that should up and was part of this memorial service.
