Wx: High 57 deg F, cloudy with occasional showers in the AM. Rain chance 60%.

Notes: Please note there is a visitation prior to the funeral service. Friends and family will be arriving during our staging period. This is a flag line only at the funeral home and again at CTSVC in Killeen for the 1 pm interment service. Mr. Reyes was a motorcyclist and rode Harleys and Indians before he became ill. His niece would love a few bikes to accompany them from Bartlett to Killeen. At this time there is NOT a LEO escorted procession.

Flag Wrangler: Nicki Campbell

Please attend to honor this Marine's service and sacrifice for our country.

In the midst of a cold mist, 8 patriots stood tall & silent as the family walked by stopping to thank each of us personally for honoring their Marine in such a special way. As always, it is our honor to be there & we truly appreciate being invited.
A great big thanks to Nicki & Soup who came all the way from Spicewood to supply flags for us.
With the FD advising that it would be hard keeping everyone together in the procession w/o LEOs & considering the weather, escort was cancelled.
