    Nice turn out to honor Mr. Williams on a drizzly Saturday morning. We had 11 in the flag line, and with the flags Don posted in advance, it was a fine view of patriotism. It went on a bit longer than expected as the congregation milled around outside the funeral home well past the scheduled start of the service.

    Thanks again to Don Ferguson for bringing the flags and water. It was great to see Juan Gonzales at the mission, too.

    RIP, Mr. Willie L. Williams. Thank you for serving our country.
