    Ralph Emory Rhoden, Veteran

    USAF - Korea

    Canton, Georgia - 22 Jun 2017



    ABOUT THE MISSION:

    Sadly, I must report that America has lost another Korean Veteran. Ralph Emory Rhoden served in the U.S. Air Force from July 1949 until his honorable discharge in December 1952. A1C Rhoden earned the Korean Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal. He was born July 21, 1931 and passed away October 18, 2016 .
    Mr. Rhoden served in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict as a airplane engine mechanic . After leaving the USAF he worked for many years in the aerospace industry, and retired from Lockheed California. After moving to Georgia, he became active in many service organizations in the Rockmart, Georgia area. He will be sorely missed by many.
    Mr Rhoden and his wife of 63 years Shirley Ann Rhoden will be inurned together this day.

    The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested by the family to stand for their loved one during the inurnment service at Georgia National Cemetery, Canton, Georgia. We will be honored to honor that request.

    Miz Alice and I have the deepest sympathy for your loss, and gratitude for his service to our country.
    Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.

    Stay firm during this trying hour, and hold one another up with a strength you may not think is there, but lies within.

    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.

    After Mission Report for Ralph Emory Rhoden, Veteran USAF - Korea And his wife Shirley Rhoden, dual inurnment.
    6/22/2017
    16 Patriots stood a flag line on a cool very wet morning to honor Ralph Rhoden service, life and dedication of 63 years of marriage to his wife SHirley. Now they will be together forever in the same niche.
    Since the rains from storm Cindy were coming down most caged to GNC. We had 1 brave soul who did ride his motorcycle.
    We had a briefing, pledge of allegiance, prayers by Lamar Owen then we set the line. Once all family and friends were seated we surrounded the shelter with our flags both to get out of the rai and to "shield" the family. The family minister read a few scriptures and then the Air Force folded the flag played TAPS and presented the flag to the 3 daughters. I presented them with a condolence card signed by all present, a certificate of Honor from the American Legion and a printout of the condolences from the PGR forums.
    The family was surprised and overwhelmed by the turnout. All 3 daughters expressed their thanks to all who attended.
    Once again I want to send my personal thanks to all who came and made a difference today.
