    The Ghost

    Seven Guard Members were present for the flag line in honor of Senior Airman Garey. Mr. Garey’s widow and Sister in Law came out of the reception and thanked us all for being there and they both shook our hands. Several others came out of the funeral home and thanked us also. A little warm but we all stayed hydrated.
