  5. Susanna, Sylvia and all of Mr. Colston’s family and friends;

    Once again, on behalf of the Patriot Guard Riders, I thank you for allowing us to participate with you in this Celebration of Life. He may have served many decades past, but please know that most Americans today do recognize that he raised his right hand and swore an oath to support and defend our Constitution – for all of us. For this act, we will be forever grateful.
