    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 we honored the life and military service of SSG Charles Ray Schoonover. I want to thank Mike for taking the pictures, showing the true faces of the PGR; to Rick and Mike for providing big flag bikes for the short procession from the funeral home to the cemetery; and most importantly, thank you to all the riders who came out to show your love and support for the Schoonover family.

    To Katy, Brian, Kristi and April, and the entire Schoonover family, thank you so much for the honor you bestowed upon us by inviting the PGR to join you during this difficult time. We were indeed blessed to honor your husband’s and father’s life and military service. I only hope we were able to bring just a little bit of comfort to you today. May God bless all of you in the coming days, weeks and months as you mourn your loss.
