REST IN PEACE!
Sunday, July 03, 2011
This morning we went to Church and did the usual.
This afternoon we went to the procession for the young man I last wrote about. It was about 93 degrees and sunny.
The Patriot motorcylists were thee. There was between 75-100 cyclists. The bag pipes then a horse driven wagon. There was 4 black horses. Their harnesses was topped w/silver. They stopped right in front of us. The horse towards us lost its footing;the hind legs started to buckle. It caught itself. The cofin was in back of the open wagon drapped in an American Flag! At that point I thought I was going to lose it!!! Then about a 2 1/2 block procession of cars.
The fire dept had two trucks at the little bridge on the way to the cementary. They had their ladders in an arch, and the procession passed under neath.
There sure could have been a lot more people paying their respects. That disappointed me!
I didn't take pictures in respect of the family.
I am still a bit shaken, and, it's not something I will soon forget.
Enjoy tomorrow, and remember the ones who made it possible for you to do so.
