From the Laing Family

Dear Bill,

We have just passed the birthday of our much-missed husband and father, Freddie Laing; and we are reminded to send this long-overdue letter.

The strong and dignified presence of the Patriot Guard Riders at the funeral of our loved one was both a comfort and an encouragement; and we have been wanting to say "Thank you" since that day in April.

During his declining days, Freddie often wore one or the other of his two favorite T-shirts. One bore the message "Proud to be a Veteran," the other "Freedom is Not Free." Somehow, the strong PGR presence at his funeral was a seal and a witness to his faithful service to his homeland -- not only during World War II, but also during the remainder of his life. This was certainly a great blessing to his family -- and most assuredly also to his hometown. Thank you.

Very truly yours,
Mrs. Margaret Laing and Daughters, Becky Laing and Phyllis Wilsey
