    The presence of the PGR has been requested at the services for Mrs. Sarah Blackmore. Mrs. Blackmore enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in the early 1940's and as a private was assigned to the military hospital at Roswell Army Airfield, NM as a Medical Technician, 1944 – 1945.

    Mrs. Blackmore is the mother-in-law of our own Sam Warren. You'll recall that we stood for Sam's father-in-law, Don Blackmore, back in January. Mrs. Blackmore herself made the request to have the PGR present at her services when the time came.

    Date/Time: Tuesday, 22 November 2011. Funeral service scheduled for 11:00 am.

    Location: First United Methodist Church, 907 W. Lake Drive, Taylor, TX. We will stage at the church.

    Directions: Approaching Taylor on eastbound Hwy 79, go north on State Loop 427 (Carlos Parker Blvd) and turn right at the first opportunity onto W. Lake Drive. The church is approx. 1 mile on the right. Map link:

    Please make plans to honor the service of another of the greatest generation who defended freedom so many years ago.


    Thanks to everyone who attended for "Momma B". She was very impressed with the PGR and I'm sure she smiled big yesterday.
    That was one smooth precession to the cemetery!
