My family made a $200 donation today online to the Patriot Guard Riders to express our deep gratitude for honoring my mother’s beloved husband and our beloved father Peter S. Ristano.
We will be eternally grateful for the services you provided at St Jospeh’s Roman Catholic Church, the Long Island National Cemetery and most importantly escorting my family and my father’s motorcycle so that his last ride was a great one!!!
Sadly my father and many other men and women that served in Vietnam did not receive the respect and honor they deserved upon their return home!
We deeply appreciate the plaque that the Patriot Guard Riders so thoughtfully and generously gave to our mother Lorraine Ristano. It means so much to us!!
I am attaching some photos that are very dear to us! We are forever grateful!
May God bless you all!
