On behalf of the entire Toner family, we want to thank the Patriot Guard Riders for honoring our husband/son/brother, Francis L. Toner IV, at both his Memorial Service at USMMA, Kings Point, NY (April 15, 2009) and his burial at Arlington National Cemetery (April 16, 2009). Words can not express our gratitude. Frankie bought a bike right before he deployed to Afghanistan, a Buell. That bike is making its way to RI where it will be proudly ridden
by his dad. Let us know if RI needs any new members!
Frankie was certainly proud to have all of you there to honor him. Of course, our family will never forget the salutes from all the riders as we left the chapel and the burial site, such honor and respect...thank you. We so appreciate all you do, not only for Frankie but for all our fallen heroes who deserve to have their lives honored without interference. Thank you for touching our lives at two of the difficult and challenging times we have ever faced as a family.
Please pass this email along for us so everyone can be thanked appropriately.
May God Bless all of you,
Frank, Sharon, Brooke, Mike, Amanda and John Toner
