Eight riders attended today's mission to honor GMCS Locke. The the cloud cover with occasional sprinkles and shaded porch allowed us to be comfortable prior to the funeral service. GMCS Locke's daughter is an APD motors officer, so the family received a nice escort from their home to the funeral home.

The cemetery portion at 1 pm was in the hot sun, but we got through it OK. A bagpiper was a nice addition, and they released doves to close that portion.

We had a new rider today. Welcome to the PGR, Aaron!

Thank you to all who took time from their Sunday to attend this mission. RIP, GMCS Richard Locke.
