David Best Comment

  1. It was my honor to be the Ride Captain today for the funeral of U.S. Army Reserve veteran, David Best. It was a beautiful, cool, sunny fall day. Many of David’s co-workers from Harley Davidson came to visit and share stories. We had 4 PGR members present and the family was very appreciative. We presented the plaque to the family, along with dog tags and coins, prior to the visitation so that it could be displayed for all to see. One family member gave each of us a small, hand made package of tobacco. She explained that it is a native American tradition that this be used to give back to mother earth. There were about 6-7 motorcycles in the escort to the cemetery and David’s daughter was a proud passenger on one of the bikes. Military honors were rendered as part of the grave site service and we stayed until all family members and guests had left.
