    My wife and I wish to extend our condolences on your loss.

    We stand with feet planted firmly on rich soil knowing what freedom is. Because of the veterans, I am free to honor God and country without persecution. Where there is injustice, I am free to fight. Where there is silence, I am free to speak. Where there is hate, I am free to love.

    Your love one’s watch is over, may they rest in the arms of God.

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.

    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.

    There are many people we meet in life, some do great deeds, but of all that can proudly be called a hero, there is none greater than the man or woman who serves their country. Miz Alice and I have the deepest sympathy for your loss, and gratitude for his/her service to our country.

    Mission Complete: 12 March, 2018 – 1st Sgt. E.R. Reece, USA/ANG WWII & Korean War Veteran, Norman/Paul’s Valley, OK.

    On Monday, March 12, 2018 there were 16 Riders on 9 bikes and 6 cages who attended the mission to Honor the Military Service of USA/ANG WWII & Korean War Veteran 1st Sgt. E.R. Reece at the Havenbrook Funeral Home Chapel in Norman.
    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.

    At the conclusion of the service, Riders stood a Respect Line as the Hero was moved from the chapel to the coach. The assembled Riders then escorted the Hero, family and friends to the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Paul’s Valley, retrieved flags from the flag vehicle, and stood another Respect Line as the Hero was moved 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 Minister, followed by the USA MHG, who played Taps and folded and presented the flag to the Hero’s wife.
    PGR followed the MHG with the presentation of the Plaque and Invocations to the surviving spouse, 2 children, and Sgt. Reece’s last surviving sibling.The family was thanked by the RC and presented with condolences from PGR members from across the nation.

    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 1st Sgt. E.R. Reece, for your service to this great nation. Rest in Peace Sir, your mission is complete, and you will not be forgotten.
