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
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 Riders.
