    This Mission is now complete. There were 5 bikes, 1 trike and two cages with a total of 9 souls attending including "Yours Truly". The Family was very appreciative.

    I had a chance to talk with many locals that personally knew Phil and all spoke very highly of him and talked of what a kind and giving person he was. Below is a quote from his Obituary:

    "He was the owner of Anderson Locksmith in Marble Falls, Texas. As a locksmith, he rarely charged the elderly,handicapped, veterans or spouse of military men in service."

    Thank you to everyone who attended the Memorial today. I hope all made it safely back home. It is you that make our Missions possible and successful. Once again thank you and thank you Mr. Anderson for being the loving, caring person you were.
    Rest in Peace.
