My Sister and I have been looking for a contact to the PGR for a while. We want to greatly thank the group for coming to my Dad's services at the Western Reserve Cemetery in Rittman, Ohio, in August 2006 (Curtis Roy Frost). I'm sure my Dad was smiling looking down on us. As a member (and former officer) of ABATE of Ohio, AMA, MRF, and formally Rolling Thunder member a few brothers and sisters showed up at his viewing. Only one brother showed up on his bike and patched vest, I thanked him for coming as himself. My Dad found the Lord and loved everyone, but he always loved and trusted bikers more, because most are upfront and real, giving, honest people.

     He was a formally a rider and a member of ABATE of Ohio, even while living in NC and GA. Until I retired office and no longer wrote my articles in the State Rag. He no longer owed a bike but was shopping around for one until his stroke in GA, before we moved him back home to Ohio. At his viewing they displayed pictures, my cousins (that don't ride) and a crazy sister of his, commented on their dislike of one of the photos we submitted. It was him younger in a leather and biker garb.

     I second thought my plans for you guys to attend, then decided this is about what we want and Dad would want it that way. It turned out great, even the biggest prudes in his family commented on how nice it was to have you guys there. The same cousins I mentioned, said Roy always did love motorcycles, I'm glad you arranged that Kevin. In fact, I didn't set it up someone from ABATE of Ohio contacted you for me, I just provided the details, time, and basic iinformation. I'm sorry I did not get to talk to the group more, I needed a restroom break after services and you guys were leaving. I do recall the Lady that delivers my mail in my small town of Rootstown was there, along with an ABATE of Ohio member, and a guy who rode from WV having mechanical issues with his ride.

     I just want to give a big thanks to the PGR for everything you did for us and all you stand for. My Dad's memorial patches are available at

     I will leave you with what I put on my Dad's patch, I got it from his Zippo lighter from Vietnam, one side had the 101 Airborne logo and the text was simply F#@k it! I knew he did that thinking he would never come home, so left it off. On the patch I put a revised version of what was engraved on the back. I'm sure I went to Heaven because I've spent my time in Hell. That is surely true. In Vietnam, and in his life back here.

Thanks again to the PGR,
Kevin Frost (Son) & Tammy Frost (Daughter)
