    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.

    Mission Complete: 16 Sept., 2017 – John P. Whitley, USA Korean War Era Veteran, Warr Acres, OK.

    On Saturday, 16 Sept., 2017 there were 12 Riders on 11 bikes and 1 cage who attended the mission to Honor the Military Service of USA Korean War Era Veteran John P. Whitley at the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Warr Acres, OK.
    The area surrounding the church was staked, and the American Flag flew proudly in the light wind as family and friends arrived.

    The briefing was held, followed by a moment of silence for the Blue, Silver & Gold Star families, POWs and MIAs. A prayer asking comfort for the grieving family, a safe mission and protection for our military personnel engaged in the Global War on Terror was also said.
    Riders stood the flag line, standing on both sides of the entry door, and manned the doors as family and friends arrived for the service. When the service started, PGR members returned the flags to the flag vehicle, which left to flag the grave site at Resurrection Cemetery.

    At the conclusion of the service, Riders stood a Respect Line as the Hero was transferred from the chapel to the coach. With the able assistance of the Okla. City Police Dept. Motor Officers, the assembled Riders then escorted the Hero, family and friends to the Resurrection Cemetery in Okla. City and stood another Respect Line as the Hero was transferred from the coach to the grave site by pall bearers consisting of family and friends of the Hero.
    A short grave side service was conducted by the Priest, followed by the USA MHG, who played Taps and folded and presented the flag to one of the Hero’s sons.
    There were five plaques and framed invocations given to each of the five children of the Hero prior to the RCIC presenting printed condolences and thanking the family for inviting us to attend this mission for their fallen father, grandfather, and friend.

    Thank you to each of my fellow Riders for attending this mission. This mission was greatly enhanced by the attendance of each of you, and your presence made a difference to this family. Most of all, thank you Mr. John P. Whitley, for your service to this great nation. Rest in Peace Sir, your mission is complete, and you will not be forgotten.

    Respectfully,
    RCIC Ray “rayneman” Gehrig
    It’s not about us. It’s about Honor, Dignity and Respect.
