    My wife and I offer our condolences to you on your loss. May our heavenly Father give your family comfort in your loving memories and His promises that soon we will never have to experience losing our loved ones in death again! (Isaiah 25:8, John 5:28,29) May these words give you a new hope for the future, with deep sympathy and warmth of heart, may you find strength in comfort in your family and friends.

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.

    ***MISSION ACCOMPLISHED*** Today the Patriot Guard Riders honored the service of Jack Thomas, United States Marine World War II Veteran and retired Dallas County Deputy Constable, as we Stood Tall and Silent during his funeral, rode with him one last time and stood again at his committal service. The certificate of our appreciation was presented to the family at the interment service.

    A very special thanks to Jim for coordinating at the Cemetery, David who provided the flags and water and Erna for 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 all of Mr. Thomas’ 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.
