    MULTI-CITY, Georgia - 20 Mar 2017



    ABOUT THE MISSION:

    I am saddened to report that our nation has lost another long term veteran. LTC McPherson’s family has asked the Patriot Guard Riders to stand for their Hero and it will be our honor to do so. LTC McPherson served his country for thirty years, first entered the USAF, serving as an officer during the Korean War, and then serving in the USAF Reserve and Air National Guard, retiring in 1989. During this period he also worked for Procter and Gamble in Cincinnati, OH. He then retired to Woodstock, GA where he enjoyed golf and travel.
    He is survived by his wife of 63 years, four sons, 10 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. LTC McPherson lost his battle with life on 9 Mar 2017 at the age of 88.
    We will stand a flag line at 10:00AM, one hour prior to the service at 11:00AM at Woodstock Funeral Home. After the service we will escort LTC McPherson to his final rest at the Georgia National Cemetery for his 1:30 service.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    It is with the utmost respect that I offer my condolences to the family of a true American Hero. Donald, may you rest in the knowledge that your duty was well done and you have the gratitude of an entire nation for your sacrifice and your service. I know that you will now be in the company of your fellow veterans who have gone before you and who will welcome you at Heaven’s Gate upon your arrival. Stand down now and know that we will carry on your legacy of freedom for all our citizens. To your family and friends I ask that God comfort them now in their time of despair and remain with them as they adjust to their loss.
