    Thank you, Bruce, Ralph, and Jim for standing with Nancy and myself last night. With such a short notice and the Cruise Night in Tilton, I really thought it would only be the two of us standing for Mr. Boland. You guys made a big difference.

    Thank you again,

    Paul

    I know this is a while in coming but I can not tell you how much it meant to me to have the Patriot Guard Riders show up at my Dad’s service and Grave Site. It was the worst day of my life when he left this world. He was such a Great Man in every way. He was only 17 when he signed up to be a Marine ( he had to have his mother sign papers and she already had two sons serving in WWII). When we got to the cemetery there in formation was about six men holding Old Glory it was a warm summer day all of a sudden a breeze picked up and the flags flew in the breeze. It’s a beautiful picture that a friend captured. He was very Patriotic and Proud Marine. It wasn’t until he was probably in his 60’s that he starting talking about his experience’s to me. The stories I will never forget. My Dad was in the 2nd Marine Division (2nd to none was their moto) I will also never forget those men and how they stood to honor a man that the never had the privilege of meeting but showed their love and honor for his sacrifice’s to this country. May the Creator of us all bless and keep them. Forever in my heart Kathy S.
