    who die in the Lord: Receive our brother Sgt. Juan Navarro into the courts of your heavenly dwelling place. Let his heart and soul now ring out in joy to you, O Lord, the living God, and the God of those who live. Almighty God, look with pity upon the sorrows of your servants especially for the family for whom we pray. Remember them, Lord, in mercy;
    nourish them with patience; comfort them with a sense of your goodness; lift up your countenance upon them; and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


    Thank you to all of you who came out to honor Sgt. Juan Navarro on the airport recovery. We had 32 bikes including two new members,and 2 cages. APD did their usual outstanding job of escorting us all safely to the funeral home. A special thankyou to our attending members who took all the last minute changes in stride and did an excellent job. Robert
