Ladies and Gentlemen of the Patriot Guard Riders of Ohio...

On July 22nd the members of the Ohio PGR met our son as he arrived in Cincinnati and escorted our son along with our grandson Joseph D. Larsen's casket up to Middletown to the funeral home. The next day they stood by at attention, each with a U.S. flag, for the entire time of the visitation.

The day of the funeral these same good men and women were present at the funeral service once again each with a U.S. flag adding additional dignity and respect to the funeral.

From the funeral home they escorted the funeral procession to the grave site and again stood by at attention until the funeral service was concluded once again adding an additional element of dignity and respect to the service.

My wife and I wish to sincerely express our thanks for your fine organizations particpation in Joseph's funeral...God bless you all and please continue your noble efforts.

Sincerely,
Douglas and Linda Larsen

Having attended JP's visitation on Sunday and his funeral yesterday, I wanted to say thank you.  Your people made all the difference!  Seeing you at both the visitation and funeral gave me an overwhelming sense of patriotism and pride.  I consider myself a patriotic person, but you really made me so proud to be an American.

I have a son serving with the 10th MTN. DIV. in Afghanistan (he knew JP) and a son-in-law serving with the 519th MP BN in Iraq.  God forbid, should anything happen to either one of them, you would be one of my first contacts.  I just cannot explain how moved I was by your presence.  You exhibited what makes this country great.  It gave me a great feeling of comfort and pride to know you were there.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sheila H. Smith
