The Family has requested our presence to honor American Hero, Ken Thomas on his going home.
I spoke to Ken and his wife Sunday. As I held Ken's hand and talked to him, I could tell that Ken was listening because he opened his eyes and looked at me because I was bent down looking into his eyes. Ken's wife told me that Ken wanted a lot of motorcycles to escort him home which will be at Orange County Cemetery in Goshen, NY. The wake will be at Brooks Funeral Home, and funeral mass will be at Sacred Heart Church. . As soon as Mari, Kens wife gets to me with details, Brian T, Region 6, Senior R/C will post.
Stand by for further details as they come in.
Thank you for what you do.
