|Special Information:||My friend Larry passed away and was interred in March of 2020 when just about everything was shut down because of the pandemic. He never received his military honors to which he was entitled. The U.S. Air Force will provide honors now.
This is to be a Jewish ceremony called an 'Unveiling,' whereupon the grave marker is unveiled. Traditionally.
The modern version is symbolic, as the grave marker has been in place for some months.
Please stage in the parking lot - we will move to the gravesite in advance of the family's arrival.
We will present a flag line at graveside and perform a plaque presentation.
