    Do to an unknown time change, all times had been moved up by 1 hour causing us to be late getting to the church. SO. A big special thanks to Flag Wrangler Don for staging flags before we all got there. The family arrived just after he got this done. The rest of us quickly grabbed flags & posted ourselves at the corner of the church drive way curve so the family could see us as they drove in. After talking with the FD & the LEOs, I dismissed the 9 patriots as it would have been a very long down time till departure to CTSVC.
    Thanks to all of U for taking the time to show this family their loved one was appreciated. Thank you Mr. Madison for your service & God be with you.


    Keith, sorry this happened, but I just checked the original request from the funeral home, and it says 11 am for the service. Thanks for doing what you could to adjust and honor Mr. Madison.
