"Lord, we ask your blessing today as we gather to pay our respects to another American serviceman. Give strength to his family in their time of grief.
I just saw Andy gracing our hallway the day before he was admitted to the hospital so you can imagine the shock I felt to learn he near death last I saw him. I had the honor of sewing his American Legion Riders vest which I know gave him great pride.
Your Sister in Christ and fellow Legion Rider
