The Daily News Article

Our family would like to thank everyone who supported Robert and his family tonight to celebrate his return "home".  Even with the arrival delay it did not diminish any one's enthusiasm. The past year has been long with many days and nights not knowing where he was, what he was doing, and above all if he was safe.  Your show of support tonight has shown us that there are those who really do  care, those who support our service men and women, and those who understand how difficult it is to send a family member off to war.  Robert noted in his remarks to everyone that there are families who will never be able to welcome their loved ones home as you did for us tonight and we must never forget that they made the ultimate sacrifice.  It has been said many times, but it never gets old, we must always remember that Freedom is not Free. There is a price to be paid.  Tonight as we spend the night as a complete family for the first time in a very long time, there are no words to truly express how our family felt as you supported us, taking time away from your family and busy lives to be there for us.  We are forever grateful.   Thank You.

Dear Patriot Guard participants,

Words cannot express the heartfelt gratitude I and the rest of my family felt with your presence at John's funeral on March 14 and at his interment in Marilla Cemetery.

I did not know how to contact you to show my thankfulness but Howie Steves, my brother, made the connections .... and thus a beautiful ceremony and a tribute to John and his "service days" back in '59-'60s when he served in Germany.

I managed to thanks the people there, or a good portion of them...... 37 in all..... I was told.... but am hoping you can share this note with the many that go beyond the 37 that were present.  May you continue your beautiful work.

with  much love and appreciation.......

John's wife,

Bob;

Please send my family's and my appreciation for the courtesy extended by the NYPGR on the death of my sister;     The family was very impressed by the manner in which the PGR executed the escort, keeping the procession secure and in line, as well as the honor and respect displayed by all the riders before, during and after the services.

My special thx to you for taking the time off from work, Frank for acting as RC and Bob Espo for attending despite his own personal problems.

In my experience, this demonstrates the highest degree of respect, dedication and professionalism that I have seen in a long while.

My prayers go out to all, you are the finest people I know and I am proud to be associated with y'all. If any ever need support down here in SoFla I am here  for you.

Always With Respect;
Richard "Whistler" Little
Patriot Guard Riders
