Dear Frank,

We wish to "Thank All The Patriot Guard Riders" that gave their time so willingly to be with my brother Angelo Zotto at the O>B> Davis Funeral Home on Friday June 3, 2011 and then to escort him to Calverton Cemetary. To have them with us brought so much warmth from the beginning to the end of his journey. I know he was watching and was so proud to be escorted by the  "Patriot Guards."

In Memory of my brother Angelo Zotto---
A little poem to all the "Patriot Guard Riders"

In this busy world,
it's wonderful
that some people
still have the art
of taking time for others--
of giving so much from the heart.

Again thank you so much from the family of Angelo Zotto.

Thank You
George and Angela Wilson

How do we thank you all enough for what you did for the Snyder family yesterday in Cohocton!  Or, for that matter, what you have done all week! Your amazing show of support and respect goes way beyond words.  To see you all standing so proudly to honor her, to shield her family, and to bring a measure of comfort through your caring is something this small community will never forget.  You are truly amazing and giving people.  May God Bless You All!

Dear Mr. Plyter and Ride Captains,

Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for you and all the Patriot Guard Riders for your strong show of support for our fallen hometown hero, Sgt. Devin Snyder.  Your presence throughout this past week was a source of comfort and pride for me.  This afternoon, when Devin was laid to rest at the Cohocton cemetery,  the sight of your group silhouetted against the horizon for the entire perimeter of the cemetery was amazing.   Seeing you there against the skyline, I couldn’t help but envision the spirits of all the warriors who have given their lives for this great country looking down from above, protecting Devin’s last moments on Earth and guiding her to her new eternity in heaven.

My sincere thank you to each and every one of the Riders, and may God bless you all.
