The rain held off for the second half of this mission. Flag Wrangler Don and myself meet at the funeral home. don posted a flag at the entry into the Funeral home. When the procession started I got in line with the big flags flying while Don, wanting to make sure there were people to stand the line, drove to CTSVC in his gage. The last thing that the wife did before leaving stopped to thank the PG. You could tell that it meant a lot to her. God Bless the family, those who stood the line and those that could not make it.
