I would like to express the deep appreciation that the Allen, Putt, and Scheuermann families have for Ralph Bago and the rest of the Northern Ohio PGR members who ventured out during heavy snowstorms on January 9th and 10th to stand in honor of my father-in-law, Norval D. Allen. As a member of the Patriot Guard, I have always felt honored to stand the flag line and honor a fallen Hero and I now know first-hand what it feels like to be on the receiving end of a flag line. I can tell you without a doubt, I have never been more proud to be a member of the Patriot Guard Riders.

The quiet strength of the flag line was commented numerous times by family and friends. At first many attending did not know who they were or why they were there, but after explaining the mission of the PGR, I instantly saw pride in their eyes and a deep appreciation for those who had left the comfort of their homes and drove in terrible weather to stand in honor of a man they did not know but felt the need to Honor. Even though my father-in-law was a humble man, I know without a doubt that he had a big smile on his face these last two days as he looked down at the flag line that was there for him.

The PGR plaque that Ralph presented to my wife Jackie will be proudly displayed on the mantel right next to the American flag that was presented to her by the Marine honor guard.

Thank you for standing for our American Hero. He will never be forgotten,

Brian and Jackie Scheuermann
