I wanted to take a moment to thank
the Patriot Guard Riders for all
their work and support in regards to
my son's funeral. At first I was not
very aware of the PGR until they were
mentioned to us by the funeral home.
We then looked you up on the web and
was impressed by your mission. We
later got in contact with Robert
"Bob" Woods and he was very
helpful in explaining what the PGR
does. Just showing up for the funeral
would have been exceptional to me but
what the PGR did do in being there
every step of the way was way beyond
anything I could have ever dared
think, let alone ask.
The turnout really floored me. The
support the PGR showed our family and
my son was (and still is)
overwhelming. I think there was only
one gentleman that we knew from
around the area, but so many PGR
members turned out to show their
respect and support. It is difficult
for me to put in to words how much
gratitude my wife and I feel. Lee
(Rabbi) was exceptional, as was every
one of your members.
We tried to thank every one but as
these events go there are so many
directions you feel drawn into, and I
know I did not get to properly thank
each one. Please, if you could,
pass on our thanks, gratitude and
admiration to all of your members.
The Patriot Guard Riders are awesome.
Thank you so very much. We will never
hesitate to "sing the
praises" of the Patriot Guard
