    I am honored to be able to render Honors & Condolences for the passing of this American Hero, Edward Earl Crowdis, Jr, United States Marine Corps. I offer my condolences to his family and friends.


    I was that which others did not want to be.
    I went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do.
    I asked nothing from those who gave
    Nothing and reluctantly accepted the
    Thought of eternal loneliness... should I fail.

    I have seen the face of terror;
    Felt the stinging cold of fear;
    And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love.
    I have cried, pained, and hoped... but most of all,
    I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.
    At least I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was...

    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of this American Hero, a grateful nation mourns your loss. Find peace, strength and comfort in the knowledge that your fallen hero gave unselfishly of themselves in order to keep us all free and safe. Your brave warrior will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing your loved one with all of us, their sense of duty and honor will live on for generations to come. God Bless you our Hero for a job well done.Stand down and rest in peace.

    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 ACCOMPLISHED*** Today the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Chief Ed Crowdis, United States Marine Corps Veteran and career law enforcement officer as we Stood Tall and Silent during his funeral. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family prior to the service.

    A very special thanks to Randy and Nicki for providing the flags and water and to Nicki for doing double-duty taking the photographs, showing this family the true face of the Patriot Guard Riders, those who so willingly give of themselves and are found standing in the Flag Line.

    To Miss Joni and Chief Crowdis’ family and friends, thank you for allowing the Patriot Guard Riders to stand today in honor of this American Hero. May God comfort you in your loss.
