A lot of you know me (even though I'm listed as a 'new member'), but I need to know what are the staging arrangements for the funeral on Friday, so I know whether or not to take off the entire day or just part of it (end of six weeks on Friday and it takes a lot of planning to be off). LCPL Stanley was a student where I teach who I have previously met. He was very well liked and thought of by all of us here at Smithville.

FYI (in case you don't have the information already), here is an e-mail we received (the school staff) from the minister handling the memorial services in Smithville. Use it as you see fit:

The visitation at the funeral home is scheduled for Thursday, 4 pm to 8 pm at McCurdys in Lockhart.

The memorial service has been set for Friday at 10 am at the First Baptist Church in Smithville.After the service, we will proceed to the cemetery outside of Lockhart. We'd like everyone to come to the First Lockhart Baptist Church after the graveside service and have a meal with us.

They went to the First Lockhart National Bank and set up an account in Cody's name to benefit the Wounded Warrior organization.

The obituary will run in the Lockhart, Bastrop, Smithville, and Austin papers on Wednesday.

Muddy Duck, how the hell are you? And Mama Duck? Please give her my regards! Good to see/ hear/ read from you my old friend.

A notice will be soon coming, but the funeral in Smithville's set for 1000 hrs. on Friday.

For all Riders attending the ABIA portion tomorrow (4 Nov), the city of Lockhart is coming out in force to show their respects. The procession will participate in a small "parade" (FH's word, not mine) around the town square before parking at the McCurdy Funeral Home. Expect a lot of red, white and blue- and a lot of tears.

See y'all in the morning.

If you move please be looking for me in my lime green jacket and light grey pants in my avatar.

Looking forward to seeing some of you. Mama Duck is doing great as am I (just getting more grey).
FYI: if you're looking for staging areas in Smithville, give me a call (Andyman and Mark). I know of a couple of good ones.

I'm making this ride as Cody is a former student here and the school is pretty broken up (staff and students). This is the third one we've lost.

No one likes the loss, but everyone should remember that freedom isn't free......for anyone in the world.

Semper Fi, Marine. God will take you in his arms.

Another tear jerker in small town, Texas. We had around 100 motorcycles today- I lost count at 59, many more arrived after I had that total. A channel 7 news guy who was on the side of 183 as we passed told me it took over 3 minutes for the procession to pass.

Edited to add: Among the 100 Riders were folks from as far away as Baytown (near Houston) and all over central and south Texas. We had over 20 first timers and one active duty among us. And in addition to to the 100 bikes, we had 3 cages. What a turnout!

The city of Lockhart was out in force. A couple of miles before we got into town, there were vehicles and people with flags lining the roadway. Folks were shoulder to shoulder and 5 deep around the town square as we lapped it en route to the Funeral Home.

It was a good, safe mission.

Many thanks to all who attended and helped make this happen. We made a positive difference in a family's time of horrible grief. We done good, y'all. I'm proud to have been with you on this day.

I am honored to be at the church tomorrow for my first, of hopefully many missions. I look forward to meeting you all at the church staging area. I spoke with my son, who is working out of town, and unable to attend the funeral service tomorrow. He said, "Thanks, Mom" He was one of Cody's friends. I want to send thanks to everyone who is able to attend the mission tomorrow.
