  2. We thank you, Colin, for your Honorable and Faithful service to our great Nation. As a member of America’s “Greatest Generation” it’s because of men and women like you, who answer the call to duty, that we continue to enjoy our freedom and liberties today. It is my fervent prayer that God will welcome you with open arms as you approach the Gates of Heaven.

    May your family, friends and community find a measure of healing through His comfort and mercy and may they all soon realize that, although no longer with them on this Earth, you continue to watch over them from your place among the Angels.

    Stand at ease, Colin. Your mission is now complete. May you rest in Honored and Eternal Peace with fair winds and following seas. God Speed, Sir.

    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Psalm 23:1-6)

    The Bible says “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” I believe that God will shed his blessings on you at this time. These are times when our Faith is tested the most, and yet it is Faith that will see us through the sorrow.

  19. Colin,
    Thank you SO much for your service. WWII was a LONG time ago. Sadly, many younger people rarely think of the importance of that war and those who fought in it. But many of us do know…and we appreciate the sacrifice that you made. May GOD grant your family and friends grace and peace over the next days and weeks.

  20. Mission Complete:

    On a very hot September day a group of 10 Patriots (9 bikes and 1 cage) gathered in Sistersville, WV to honor yet another WW II Hero, Colin Doig. We had a short briefing then formed flag lines on either side of the front door of Myers Funeral Home prior to the arrival of Mr. Doig’s family. Family members appeared very pleased at our showing of respect and honor for their loved one. Many expressed their gratitude for our presence. Flagline was maintained until the start of the service. Just prior to the start of the service Shirley Doty Martin and I presented the condolence book and the plaque to Mrs. Doig and expressed our gratitude for her husbands service to our country. Following the service, PGR members formed a line at the rear of the hearse and rendered a salute as Mr. Doig was transferred to the hearse. Following a short escort from Sistersville to Greenlawn Cemetery we again formed a flag line for the duration of the brief graveside service. After family dispersed, the PGR members were dismissed. Thanks to all who came out today to honor this HERO. Mission complete.

  21. I would like to personally thank each and every single one of the Patriot Guard Riders who stood guard honoring my grandfather, Colin Doig. He loved his country and bled red, white, and blue. When he was able, he took much pride in carrying The American Flag during the Parade. I couldn’t be more honored to have a TRUE American Hero as my own grandpa!! Thank you all so much for being there…..it means so much to us all. (Especially my 3 year old son who was running around wearing his Great Papa’s WWII Veteran hat….he is still talking about the motorcycles and shaking all of your hands!)

    Jennifer Doig
