As we are approaching the holiday season, it's an excellent time to remember our fallen and their ultimate sacrafice; another way to remember them is to sponsor a wreath.  Sponsoring a wreath through Wreaths Across America is easy.  Whether at Saratoga National Cemetery or another cemetery where you wish to have a wreath placed. Just click on the image to enter Wreaths Across America.  Simply click on the DONATE at the bottom of their page.  Thank you.

The Patriot Guard Riders of Eastern New York have once again been granted Group Sponsorship status within the Wreaths Across America organization. So what does our Group Sponsorship status mean? Well for every two wreaths that are ordered - using our group code – Wreaths Across America will donate another wreath - we get 3 for 2.

Thank you.

THOMAS J. FARRA, 83, Mastic Beach, lost his long battle with his illness and died at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset on August 8th, 2017. Tom was born in the Bronx, had served honorably in the United States Army during the Korean War, and was a self-employed electrical contractor. He was the original ‘workaholic’, an active member of the VFW, loved to play cards, go to the casino, and traveled extensively with his wife and family to Aruba, Alaska, Vegas and Florida. He loved to play dominos and give domino sets to special family and friends. He was a devoted husband to his wife Florence to whom he had been married for the past sixty-four years. He was the loving father of Donna (Todd) Feibusch Cynthia (Frank) Perazzo, Thomas (Carrie) Farra and Laura (Christopher) Semlies. He was the cherished grandfather to Ashley, Elizabeth, Gabriella, Morgan, Nicole, Veronica, Charlotte, Graham and Harper. He was the loving brother to his twin Gerry, Ronald, and Catherine Barry. Family and friends were received at Roma Funeral Home in Shirley on Thursday and a Mass was offered at St. Jude’s RC Church in Mastic Beach at 10:00 am.
