The Cook-Walden chapel was full of family and friends attending Mr. Beck's service. Twelve PGR members were there to stand in his honor. The PGR received many comments of appreciation. Thanks to Don Ferguson for contacting me and volunteering to flag wrangle in my place. Thanks also to RC Keith Longacre for volunteering to hold the U.S. Navy flag even though he's a former Marine. Keith is a true Patrioit!
